A Conversation

The Boy: Mom, do Germans live inside the Earth?

Me: Um, no. In Germany, usually.

The Boy: But Dad said...

Me: He meant if you dig all the way through the center of the Earth to the other side you'd come out somewhere around Germany.

The Boy: So Germany is in outerspace?

Me: Sometimes they sure act like it, son, but no. We'll get the globe out when your sister wakes up and I'll show you what Dad was talking about.
