Sorry, Horatio


Leah, my 15-year-old, and I were out walking the dog this evening.

Leah: "So, Tiana and I were late for Math, we walked in after everyone was already there, but the teacher turned a blind eye and didn't say anything."

Me: "Do you know where that saying comes from? 'Turn a blind eye?'"

Leah: "I hope to God you're going to tell me it's from Mad Eye Moody."

Me: .......

Me: "Never mind, it's nowhere near that cool."
