We’re reading Magic Tree House #3: Mummies in the Morning, and on the way home from supper last night (my mother surprised me with cabbage rolls), we were talking about Ancient Egypt, and how our Avos spent time there.
Naomi Rivka: “You know, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Syria… they’re all –” (pause) “- they’re like good friends.”
Um, okay! I just said, “because they’re so close together!” and she agreed.
We left it at that: I cannot bear to disillusion her.
