Saturday Lunch:

The Boy; I need a new calendar.
Me: What do you mean? Like a wall calendar?
Boy: Yeah, so I can write out my work schedule.
Me: Well, they probably have ’09 calendars out.
Boy; Yeah, but I need one for now because mine just ran out.
Me: Why did your calendar run out at the end of September?
Boy: It’s a Jewish calendar.
Me: Uh huh. Why are you using a Jewish calendar?
Boy: It has different things on it. Like it’s the year 1570 or something. And different names for the months.
Me: And this is useful?
Boy: It’s different.
