How long will my child find me intelligent?

I'm guessing not super long. You know, like once he goes to school. I haven't been in school in a REALLY long time so his knowledge will be more fresh than mine.

I say this because--this weekend we went to dinner for my friends 30th bday (ps. I kick ass because I brought like 150 glow bracelets-who doesn't love those?)

Anyway, so back to dinner, Ben and I are talking, and this one girl mentions that her dad own's this Italian restaurant here and her last name is Mauro. Ben says to me, "You know, like that one waiter we had in Italy at x place." I stare blankly. I recall the waiter and the place we ate. And he's like, "you know, the one who told us his name was Mauro--like the ship. You know, and you said to him, "The Titanic? The Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria?"

My response--well, those are the only ships I know.

Then we laughed and he said, "I love you." (Ben speak--Bless your heart.)
