You just never know what will stick

Today in history we read about the Louisiana Purchase, and how Lewis and Clark were then sent out to explore the West. 

"I know about them," said Crayons.  "From Beezus and Ramona."

And she was right.
"'I am too a Merry Sunshine,' insisted Ramona, but she got down from the table and ran out of the room.

"Everyone was silent for a moment. 'Beezus, what was it you were trying to tell me?' Aunt Beatrice asked.
"And finally Beezus got to tell about leading Lewis and Clark to Oregon, with a doll tied to Mother's breadboard for a papoose, and how her teacher told her what a clever girl she was to think of using a breadboard for a papoose board. Somehow she did not feel the same about telling the story after all Ramona's interruptions."
--Beverly Cleary, Beezus and Ramona
