Max is on a reward system at school that gives him points in US dollars for good behavior. If he saves his dollars (racks up the good behavior) he can use his points to buy something from the school store.
Today, while cashing in at the store, he asked his counselor:
"Can I transfer my dollars into pounds? Then I'll have twice as many."
The counselor then quizzed me on where Max's British influences come from...
(Occasionally he breaks into a British accent).
Caught a little off guard, I clumsily offer, "um, Harry Potter? But he's only seen it once and that was wayyyy over a year ago... And you know, they don't even have pounds!" She just nodded accomodatingly, "oh, sure."
Yeah... I'm sure she thinks I'm knuts.
