Snippet: A Little Confusion

Flora got a thank you card from each of her teachers for the bubble magnets we gave them.

We opened the cards together, and read them.

Flora: “How come they have ‘missus’ in their names?”
Me: “They are married.”
Flora, clearly flabbergasted: “What? Two girls and no boy?”
Me: “Not to each other!”

(Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But 5 does seem a little young to explain civil/marriage rights.)
