A Comedy of Errors

I was listening to a conversation my children were having at dinner, and they made me laugh out loud.

Ladybug was looking at some coins she brought home from Sunday School (no, she didn’t steal from the offering basket…it was part of the lesson about the Temple in Jerusalem), and suddenly, she shouted in a very excited voice: “I have a coin with the Temple on it!”

I heard Bunny sigh, look at the coin, and say in an equally exasperated voice: “That’s not the Temple, that’s the White House.”

That would have been funny enough on its own, except that Bunny ‘s response was also incorrect. It’s not the White House on the Jefferson nickel, it’s Monticello. They were both so confident in their observations, and yet both so very wrong!
