When in doubt, shout....Lake Titicaca
Does your mother-cum-teacher confuse Peru and Nigeria?
Can she tell the Canary Islands from the Galapagos?
Is Lake Titicaca the only lake besides the five Great Lakes that she remembers from grade school? And does she constantly shout that out as an answer when faced with a lake question?* Is that what’s bothering you, bunky?

Well, letting her watch the National Geographic Bee won’t help her self-esteem. Indeed, she is already aware of this weakness in her education. And she’s working on it. Really. What does mom have in common with the Bee winner? Ummmm...we’re both from Illinois.

(*Hey, I’ve resorted to that three times this week. And twice I was right.)
