Recently I saw a meme floating around that just about made me cry. I won’t post it here, but suffice it to say there are some people in the world who can’t keep condiments and continents straight.
Folks, this just should not be.
After I got my shoulders down from around my ears and managed to unclench my jaw, I grabbed the nearest child– who happened to be 3 year-old Birdie– and demanded, “Name the continents.” After dutifully recounting “Norf America, Souf America, U-rop, Asia, and Ausssstrail-yuh! Africa! Ant-arc-tick-uh! These are the continents!” in her delightful sing-song voice, she then gave me the run down of the oceans. I then dragged her sweet little self over to our massive wall map and had her sing the song again, this time pointing to the appropriate land masses.
