(While playing Brain Quest ...)
Baylor: Oh, Mollie, I will give you the second grade one! You will know this.
Baylor: What are the names of the Great Lakes?
Amalia: Oh ...
Baylor: You want my help?
Baylor: Okay, let's say them together!
Both: Michigan ...
Baylor: Huron ...
Amalia: The Lake ...
Baylor: What? No.
Amalia: Yes it is! Remember, sometimes we say, "We're going to The Lake!"?
Baylor: (sighing) Okay, I'll show you a different way. It'll help you remember it. Huron ... Ontario ... Michigan ... Erie ... Superior. How many was that, Amalia?
Amalia: I don't know.
Baylor: It was five. There are five Great Lakes, and you can spell the word HOMES with the first letter of each of them. H - O - M - E - S
Both: (singing) H, O, M, E, S! H, O, M, E, S!
(After hearing my watch buzz on the hour ...)
Baylor: It's 9:00!
Me: Nope, it's 8:00.
Baylor: Oh. I thought I woke up at 8:40 not 7:40. Oh well. Misunderstandings!
(While watching the Tour de France ...)
Baylor: Why aren't they speeding?
Bryson: Well, because they are working really hard going uphill. They'll go faster when they go downhill. Just wait.
Baylor: Is anyone going to hurl?
(While watching the Olympic track and field trials ...)
Bryson: Oh, well it looks like we're watching another long race.
Me: How long is it?
Bryson: 5,000 meters.
Baylor: That's a long run! Is anyone going to hurl?
Amalia: My (imaginary) daughters are at their house doing experiments and they broke the sound barrier! And now they don't know how to fix it!
Bryson: (smiling) They broke the sound barrier?
Amalia: Yeah! And they don't know how to fix it! So I told them, "Well, just break it again!"
