Mary’s version of the history of the Pilgrims

I guess they’re learning about the Pilgrims in school. Anyway, she made a Mayflower out of a bar of soap. She told me that the Americans rode on the Mayflower, and I said, “Yeah, they did. They weren’t Americans at the time, though, were they?”

This was her explanation:

“They were English. That means England. And they landed on a rock. And then Squanto was their teacher, and he told them how to plant corn. They plant two fish with a corn. And that’s how they are Americans.”
