Run! It’s your grandchildren!!

(singing) “…promote the general welfare a-and, secure the blessings o-of liberty, to ourselves and our posterity…”
– Emily, singing the Preamble of the US Constitution to herself

“Emily? Do you know what ‘posterity’ means?”
– Daddy, sensing a teachable moment

“Uh… no.”
– Emily

“It’s those who come after us…”
– Daddy

– Emily makes a “yikes!” look…

“…like my children and my children’s children and so on.”
– Daddy, finishing his sentence and wondering what the “yikes!” look was for

“Oh… I thought someone was chasing us!”
– Emily, pointing out another meaning of “those who come after us”
