He was right

“My Maths book has a mistake”, my older one informed me. “There is a question, ‘which are the only two months that are next to each other and have 31 days?’. The question is wrong, isn’t it?”
“Of course not. There are two months that are together that have 31 days”, I snapped; irritated that at nearly nine, he still didn’t know the calendar.
“You are talking about July and August, aren’t you?”, he asked. “But what about December and January. They have 31 days too, and they are next to each other.”
And you know what, he was right!
“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.”
― Mark Twain

This is the fourth year that I am going to be a part of NaBloWriM. The Plan is to elaborate on a quote that touched my heart- let's see how far this takes me. If I can tie it in with the writing prompt, so much the better!
