Yesterday, O1 and I were driving to a birthday party.

Me: “O1, do you know what a ‘potluck’ is?”

(Pause)

O1: “It’s a kind of party thrown by an indian chief to show how important he is.”

(Pause)

Me: “No, not ‘potlatch’. ‘Potluck’.”

O1: “Oh. It’s a dinner where everyone brings a dish to share.”
