Him: “Who was the lady who sewed the first American flag?”
Me: “Oh, you mean Betsey Johnson?”
That was a really pathetic moment. And I can’t believe I’m coming clean on the internet.

Betsey Johnson is also a revolutionary seamstress (of a different sort)…possibly.
makes a homeschooling mom proud!
My first ever “report” was written in the 1st grade on good old Betsy Ross.
Whatevs. LIke Katherine M said. BJ is revolutionary too!
I have a lot of moments like that. I have come to believe that half of the information we learn has no value except as trivia. The fact that you knew a woman existed who sewed it is what is valuable. The name seems as irrelevant as the name of the lead singer of 4 Non Blondes.
