Overheard conversation on an airplane

August 25, 2009

[6.25 a.m., aboard a Brazil-U.S. flight, heard between a Brazilian mother and her 5-year old son.]

CHILD: [yawning] Where are we? Where have we landed?
MOTHER: We are in D.C. now. Remember what I told you about D.C.?
CHILD: No. I’m not sure where we are.
MOTHER: We’re in the city where Obama lives. President Obama? This is where he lives.
CHILD: I thought we were visiting Grandma.
