Scene: Dinner Last Night
Characters: Mini-Husband, The Princess, and a roaming Bubba-Love who wouldn't stay at the table.
Discussion: The Titanic and it's huge iceberg.
The characters then wanted to know if Grandma and Grand-dad existed when the Titanic sank.
"No, this was almost a hundred years ago that this happened."
The characters then ask if Bapa had been alive when the boat sank.
"Kids, no. This happened a long, long time ago. Before Bapa was born. Even Kitty's dad was only 3 years old. It was a long, long time ago."
"Why didn't they see the iceberg?"
"Because it was nighttime and the ship's crew didn't see it," I told them.
The characters reflected on this for a minute.
Mini-Husband wanted to know why the ship's captain didn't use night goggles to see the iceberg.
"They didn't exist then," I said.
The Princess pipes up, "Did McDonald's exist then?"
"No, sweetie. McDonald's didn't exist then."
The look of horror on their faces was priceless. Even Bubba-Love stopped to take notice of this ever so important news.
"NO MCDONALD'S! Oh my goodness! NO MCDONALD'S!"
And thus the scene ended with the shock and horror that previous generations haven't been graced with a happy meal before sinking into the Atlantic.
