Leta: “Did maps exist when you were my age?”

Me: “Yes. Yes they did. But some things have changed since then. When I was your age there was a country in Europe called Czechoslovakia. Now that country is two different countries called the Czech Republic and… what’s the other one?”

Jon: “I think it’s Slovakia.”

Me: “Right. DUH. And Germany used to be two different countries: West Germany and East—”

Leta: “OKAY. All I asked is whether or not maps were around back then. I didn’t ask what you were wearing or what your hair looked like or if you liked pizza!”
