"Tomorrow will be like today, only more so"

While I waited for my car at the mechanics', I sat with a family who also waited.  Their conversation has stayed with me for the rest of the day, and I find it sad even now to type it out:

Child, pointing to the Catholic Church down the street: "Mom, that looks like a castle!"

Mother: "I've told you ten times, that's not a castle!"

Child, more slowly, considering her mother's words: "But it looks like a castle?"

Mother: "It's not a castle."
