Me: Beta, here’s a list of famous spiritual people, go to the library, ask the librarian for help, pick two biographies.
Beta: Okay!
(time passes)
Me: Welcome back, which ones did you get?
Beta: The Dalai Lama!
Me: And what else?
Beta: What do you mean what else?  I got two books on the Dalai Lama.
Me:…..Beta, you needed to pick two different people to read about for the scout pin.
Beta: Well you didn’t specify that!
