I was driving my children to visit their grandmother an hour away. I was listening to talk radio and was only marginally aware they were having a conversation. Until the conversation got loud.

"You are so wrong! You are always wrong!" Lila shouted.

"You always say that!" shouted Danny in return. "And I am not wrong!"

"Are so!"

"Am not!"


"Are so times a hundred!"

"Am not times a thousand!"

"Are so a million!"

"Am not kafillion!"


"That's not even a number!"

"Is so!"

"Is not!"

"Is so to trinity!"

"It's infinity, stupid! Not trinity!" Lila rolled her eyes at her
little brother.

"Well, trinity's even more than infinity!"

"No, it's not!"

"Yes, it is!"

"Not!"

"Is!"

"Not forever and ever."

"Is forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever......"

"Not, not, not, not, not, not, not, not, not, not....."

"OK!" I shouted. "That's enough! What in the world were you guys arguing about in the first place?"

"Huh?" they seemed surprised that I was even in the car with them.

"Lila, what is Danny wrong about? Danny, what is it you insist you are right about? Maybe I can clear things up."

"Um...." Lila said.

"Er...." Danny muttered.

Then, they finally agreed.

"We don't remember." They answered.
