funniest vacation moment #1

So we are standing on the river walk looking out over the main square in the French Quarter. My son is very impressed by the huge statue of a man on horseback that has pride of place in the center of the plaza.

"Who do you think that could be?" I ask him.

"Abraham Lincoln?" he guesses.

"In New Orleans? I don't think so, sweetheart."

"I'll give you a hint," says his aunt. "This place is called Jackson Square. Now do can you guess?"

"Jackson Pollock?" he asks.

(Brief interlude while my sister and I help each other up off the ground where we have collapsed in hysterics.)

"Actually, it's Andrew Jackson." I tell him.

"Oh."

I am less than 100 miles from Jackson Square. Wish you'd called!
Was it hot enough for you in the Quarter?
Your child's comment is priceless!
