Somewhere in Huron Ohio

Two aunts, two uncles, my parents, my grandmother, and I are digging through the last couple boxes of stuff from grandma's recently sold house, and they turned up a booklet from the Encyclopedia Britannica about China and Japan.

Aunt: Here, [mousie], you'll enjoy this.
Dad: what year is that?
me: 1946. *flips it open to find a picture of the Great Wall of China*
Mom: Is that a picture of them building it?
everyone: "................."
me: AHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH
Dad: I think you missed it by HUNDREDS OF YEARS.
Mom: I thought that was a bulldozer in the picture!
me: *CRYING LAUGHING*
Dad: THEY DID NOT HAVE BULLDOZERS.

eventually, i flipped to another picture of a Japanese fisherman with a freshly caught octopus, and my mother asks "Is that a poodle?"

oh my god, MY LIFE. This is why i love it so much when Kisumai talks about how their mothers are all crazy.
