Bear: Hey, Mom, what was the Proclamation of 1763?
Me (authoritatively): That's the one where they banned ginger ale in the colonies.
Bear (pausing doubtfully with pencil poised above paper): I didn't know they had ginger ale back then.
Me: Oh, sure. No, wait! 1763 ... actually that's the one that prohibited dogs from mating with squirrels.
Bear (laughing): Mom! It was not!
Me: I get those two confused.
Bear: Come on...
Me: Oh, I know! Why don't you try LOOKING IT UP YOURSELF, Miss Lazypants?
