Third Grade Takes on French History, or I Don’t Even

Julia: “Is France a very poor country?”
Me: “No, France is very rich. A lot like the U.S.”
J: “Who’s their king?”
M: “They don’t have a king. They got rid of him.”
J: “Oh, yeah. The guy that they chopped off his head.”
M: “Right. Louis the Sixteenth.”
J: “Was he a bad king?”
M: “No, but he wasn’t a very good king, either.”
J: “He should have tried out for the basketball team.”
M: “What?”
J: “You know, in case he was better at basketball than being a king.”
