A Typical Conversation

Unfortunately for me this is the kind of conversation that comes up on a very regular (much too regular!) basis:

Gabe: I love boysenberry syrup!

Me: Me too and that's the exact same kind I ate when I was a little girl!.

Gabe (a bit too startled): Wait a minute, diiiiiiid you have stoves back then?

Me: Yes, believe it or not we had stoves all the way back then.

Gabe: No mommy. What I'm trying to say is did you have tv with ACTUAL different channels?

This is like the time, not too long ago, when he asked me if I was born when pencils had been invented. 

When does this kid think I was born? 1877?

Oh my gosh! This totally reminds me of a classic conversation I had with Becky when she was about 7. We were talking about TV, and I said, "You know, when I was your age we didn't have a color TV. Everything was in black and white" to which Becky said, "I feel so sad for you that you had to look at black grass and a white sky every day." Yep, she thought that noy only was the TV picture black and white but that the entire world was black and white-that we all lived on a colorless planet back in the 70's!
