During one recent family visit, we got on the discussion of state capitals. One family member claimed that she knew them all, and so then everyone felt the need to start quizzing her. At the point of getting several of them wrong, she declared that she apparently didn’t know any of them.
I then turned to Noah and said, “What’s the capital of Indiana?” I thought, perhaps, he might know it, having been to Indianapolis before. Although I did know that they hadn’t yet talked about state capitals in school.
Noah, however, heard a different question — a grammatical question instead. He tilted his head to one side and said, “Ummm…the letter I?”
And, really, that was hard to argue with. “Yes, you’re right, Noah. The I is the one that is capitalized.”
