Tonight at dinner, Shane mentioned that the first man in space was a Russian.
Shayla: "Oh, in history we were talking about the Russians getting into space first and that it caused the Americans to go into a frenzy to step up science and math in the schools. They really wanted to catch up."
Me: (Missing the "to" and completely baffled as to why ketchup would be so important in the Space Race) "Ketchup? Wasn't ketchup already invented by then?"
Shayla: "Why no, as a matter of fact they were all 'We must have a condiment, made of tomatoes--and before the Russians!'"
Shane: "Our students must get on this right away!"
Sam: "It will contain vinegar and sugar and the secret ingredient: X!"
Cue the hysterical laughter--we really crack ourselves up.
