Back Seat Questions of the Day

The Boy: Mom, how do you say Alabama in German?

Me: I would assume they say Alabama [said with a slightly different, Germanic a-sound].

The Boy: Really?!? They say it the same way? How do you say Alabama in French?


That is precious!

I'm guessing there would be alot of breathing in through the nose and "hmph's" before the actual French pronounciation.

Nice that he didn't ask you about Tennessee, for example. That would stump me for sure!
