Joe Montana

Megan has lately gotten into drawing cartoons of our family, based on conversations from this blog. I will post about the specifics of that later, but I wanted to write down this conversation before I forgot.

Megan was trying to think of a name for her cartoon strip. It is drawn in Japanese Chibi style — very cute!

Megan: I was thinking of maybe calling it “Chibi [something].”

Albert: You could call it  Chib-Yee. Get it?

Angela: I don’t know if most people would know what chibis are though.

Albert: (looking at Angela) Well, you didn’t know who Joe Montana was either.

Daniel: *I* don’t know who Joe Montana is.

Angela: You’re too young.

Daniel: Was he from a state?

Angela: No.

Daniel: Was he named after a state?

Angela: No.

Daniel: Did he live in a state?

Angela: No. He was a baseball player.

(Albert stares at Angela.)

Angela: I mean, a football player! Yeah, he was a football player! I meant to say that! I really did!

(Albert puts his head down on the table and pretends to sob.)

    Yeah, Megan is too young to know who Joe Montana is. But, Angela, you’re “too old” to remember correctly. Joe Montana was such a famous football play in his days that even I knew him and still remember him!
