In the car today...

The Boy: There have been 502 leap years.

Me: Provided there have always been leap years.

The Husband: There have been more than 2008 years since time began. You mean since the first century.

The Girl: What's BC?

Me: That depends...either Before Christ or Before Common Era; same thing.

The Girl: And AD means After Dinosaurs.

Me: Yes - that' s EXACTLY what it means!
