There I was, attempting to have a conversation about a current movie with my groovy two nephews, ages 9 and 11. I was talking about The Hunger Games. Woody Harrelson and Jennifer Lawrence star in the futuristic action thriller.
Of course, I thought I was making a lot of sense. While I was trying to make a specific point about those two actors, I noticed the boys were giving me...that look.
Me: "What's the matter?"
Them: "Uncle Bobby, their names in the movie are Haymitch and Katniss."
Me: "Yeah? And?"
Them: "You said Herman and Katnip. Not Haymitch and Katniss."
I'm older now. I get confused. So glad I've got cool nephews to help me out.
