The Kind of Conversations in My Home

Son: Mom, when I was watching Smallville they said Einstein.

I frown. : Do you know who Einstein is?

Son looks at me as if I’m daft.: Yeah. It’s the dog from Back to the Future.

I go on to explain about the real Albert Einstein.

Blank look from son.: So, he’s Doc Brown’s dog?

I accept that I’ll have to explain this again in a few years. : Yes.

    1. Pop culture has ruined my home. Then again my kid is seven. So the comprehensive skills required to understand a man named Albert Einstein helped create something called an atomic bomb. That's the reason why the dog was named Einstein. Doc Brown is a scientist and so was Einstein...Well, it's going to be lost next to a cute dog.
