Mixed Timelines

This morning my daughter asked me, “were you alive when the guy who made the light bulb died?”

Me:”Thomas Edison?”

Her: “yeah, THAT guy.”

“OH no sweetheart, mommy definitely wasn’t alive. That was a really long time ago , like I don’t know…100 years?”

Her: “No. He died in 2006. It was only 2006. Aren’t you A LOT older than that?”

Me: “Well yes I was around in 2006, but he was definitely already dead.”

Her: “NO. You’re wrong”

It looks like confidence in your own knowledge may be genetic. It has been passed on.
