Dinner conversation

Last night, as he does every night, Asia asked the kids what they did at school.

When it was Savannah's turn, she decided to tell us about her reading assignment at school, which included reading books from three different genres.

She told us one of the books she read was a historical fiction about a girl whose father went off to war and the letters they wrote each other while he was gone.

Ethan was listening as he ate and when Savannah finished her synopsis of the book he got a perplexed look on his face and asked "What's so funny about that?"

Savannah looked at him, just as confused, and said, "It's not funny."

E. replied, "But you said it was hysterical fiction..."
