Genius??? Maybe, Maybe Not!

I met a friend and her triplets at the mall tonight for dinner and some burn-off-some-steam time. We were having dinner in the food court, next to the Merry-Go-Round.

At one point, Jack looks up at the Merry-Go-Round and says "hey Mom, do you see that picture of Mt. Moron?"

Me: "Mt. Moron?".

Jack: "yeah, Mt. Moron"

I told him that I don't know what he is talking about and never heard of a "Mt. Moron".

He responds "ya know, the picture of Mt. Moron up there with the 4 heads of the presidents".

Me: "Jack, do you mean that picture of Mt. Rushmore?".

He said "oh, yeah" "Well, which one is President Washington...".

Now, I can understand that with a vocabulary that is expanding by leaps and bounds every day that there are going to be mistakes. But, how bizarre for him to mix up "moron" with "rushmore". How did that happen???

Too bad it wasn't a picture of some of the presidents that we have had in the last 40 years...now that would have been funny!!!

I caught the connection right away---Presidents/morons. I do recal an earlier post about a moron, so he must already have some political opinions. Hmmm does he have a choice between Obama or Hilary yet??? Kelly you are brilliant -it's no wonder you are raising all those genius boys!
