Jacob makes me look foolish (again)

Sigh. Here we go again. Yesterday Andrew brought home a Mother's Day gift he made at school. After much pleading, we reluctantly let him open it for Lynn... because well, it's not Mother's Day yet. But he was really excited to give it to her so how could we say no. Anyway, it was card which he wrote on the front, "Mom is . . ." and Jacob blurted out, "Ellipsis!" Huh? I looked at Lynn with a confused face and asked, "Ellipsis? What's that? From the James Bond movie?" It was the code word the bad guys were texting each other in the movie Casino Royale but that's probably not what Jacob meant. "It's the three dots," he said and pointed to Andrew's card. Stunned and confused, I just said okay. There was no way I was going to disagree with him unless I was absolutely sure of myself... I already learned my lesson. And the thing is, I had total confidence that he was right.

    I love your only reference to the word is from Casino Royale.

    That just shows you how smart (or dumb) I am.

    And the funniest part is I knew exactly what part of the movie he was talking about... ;-)
