England's just better

After a conversation about Mary Poppins...

Neptune: I wish we lived in England.
Me: Really? Why?
Neptune: In England, the nannies live with the families.
Me: Ah, that's right, Mary Poppins did live with the family, huh? You know, sometimes nannies in the United States live with families too. It really just depends on what works best for the family and for the nanny.
Neptune: Oh! So you could live with us?
Me: That would be fun, wouldn't it? But where would I stay? You don't have an extra room!
Neptune: The fold out couch is actually really comfortable!

That's actually quite generous of him-- he and his sister like that couch a lot.
