Geographically Challenged

Little Brother pointed out our front window and said, "Mom, is that the way Nannie lives?"

I pointed out the back window and said, "No, she lives north of here. The front window is south."

Little Brother was sure that couldn't be right. So he got up and stood in front of the coffee table. "This is south," he said. "Not this way, because that's where the Pacific Ocean would be. That's west!"

He's done one too many US-map puzzles on that coffee table, and all apparently facing the same direction. Hopefully he will learn something about orienteering in Cub Scouts.
