Me: "Do you know what this is?"
RX: "A piece of wood from a ship?"
Me: "From the HMS Victory."
RX: "That's probably red lead paint."
Me: "I won't lick it, I promise. But... This piece of wood was at Trafalgar! And... And! I have a piece of wood downstairs from the USS Constitution..."
RX: "You keep them apart so they won't explode?"
