Overheard at my house on Friday

An unspecified teenager, murmuring to herself: "How many states are there? Fifty? No, that doesn't sound right. Fifty-TWO! Fifty-two states. No, wait, that doesn't sound right either. Oh, hang on, I'm thinking of playing cards. There are fifty-two playing cards and fifty states. Okay. I'm good."

Me [dropping head into hands]: Aaarrrrrrrrgghhhhh!!!!!

Unspecified teenager: Do you have a headache?

Me [darkly]: I do now.

And to think that we spent an entire school year with a rather demanding course in social studies/geography on the United States.
