conversation about weather

Mary got a “weather” calendar [it’s our 2010 calendar, but she fell in love with it at the bookstore and we got it because she liked it so much]. The January picture is of the northern lights.

Mary: Mom, is aurora borealis?
Me: What?
Mary: Is aurora borealis?
Me: Right now? I don’t know what you’re looking at, but I doubt it’s aurora borealis.
Mary: NO! Not looking at it. Aurora borealis is?
Me: Is what?
Mary: Is somewhere?
Me: Are you asking if it exists?
Mary: Yes. Aurora borealis is?
Me: Yes, it’s real. It’s just not here.
Mary: Oh.
