Rip Who?

I was half listening to the news this morning and heard about a girl who sleeps for crazy amounts of time. Once she slept for 32 days! She gets up and uses the bathroom and eats, but is in sort of a trance and goes straight back to bed.

So I just mention out loud, "Gosh, she's like Rip Van Winkle".

K, "Who is that?"

Me, "You don't know who Rip Van Winkle is?"

K, "No."

Me, "B, do you know who Rip Van Winkle is?"

B, "Some old singer?"

Me, " I am checking the story out of the library for you two today."

I asked my oldest -- thinking at least HER class must have read it at least once -- seems I need to hit the library, too :(

I saw that story on tv too and didn't even THINK of Rip Van Winkle, though I obviously know his story. What does that say about me???

Don't answer that.
