6yo: Oh! I know him! I’ll give you a hint. His first name starts with “Z” and his second name starts with “M.”
Me: Um. Well, the name I know him by doesn’t start with those letters.
6yo: No, my friend told me all about him. His name has “Z” and “M.” He’s from DC Comics.
Me: No, this statue is of someone who was president of the United States.
6yo: Oh, well maybe he isn’t from DC Comics. His name is Zombie Man!
Me: Well, I know him as Abraham Lincoln.
6yo: Oh, yes! Abraham Lincoln! From the penny!
Me: Yes. Abraham Lincoln. From the penny.
I suppose I should feel grateful that he remembered that Lincoln is on the penny and that somewhere in his head is a connection to DC. It’s a decent start for a six-year-old.
