Anna: Penelope, the Lincoln Memorial is coming up on your left!
Boy: You’re going to love my Lincoln Memorial Fun Fact!
Anna: Oh, please tell us!
Boy: On a wall inside the memorial, the word “FUTURE” was carved wrong! They carved “EUTURE”!
Anna: Well, we all make mistakes.
Boy: Yeah, but this mistake was carved in stone!
Anna: You’re right. That is pretty bad. Here’s another dollar!
Penelope: More fun facts, please! (Crossing the river) I love riding over bridges! The water looks so pretty from here!
Anna: Penelope, this is amazing! A minute ago, we were riding along the river, and now we’re riding in the river! Awesome.
Penelope: Hey, we’re passing by the Pentagon on our right!
Anna: Penelope, you love riding over the water on a bridge. But I love riding under a bridge in a boat!
Penelope: Anna, look! An airplane is flying right over our heads!
Anna: Wow! This is the closest I’ve ever been to an airplane in
flight. Well, I’ve been inside a flying airplane. But not outside of an
airplane as it flies over my head!
Penelope: And now we’re driving out of the water. I still can’t believe this thing drives and sails!
Anna: I know. It’s amazing.
Boy: After we ride along these railroad tracks, you’ll see my
favorite part of the tour! The U.S. Treasury where they make money!
Penelope: Look, the U.S. Capitol is coming up!
Boy: I have a great Fun Fact about the U.S. Capitol.
Penelope: What is it?
Boy: There are tunnels under the Capitol. They connect the Capitol and office buildings of lawmakers.
Anna: I bet they built them years ago for secret reasons!
Boy: No. The lawmakers did not want to walk around outside in bad weather.
Penelope: We’re back at Union Station!
Boy: Do you want to know a creepy Fun Fact about Union Station? (he points to Union Station)
Penelope: The creepier the better!
Boy: Many years ago, inside Union Station, there was a funeral home!
Anna: A funeral home?! You mean, for dead people?!
Boy: Do you know another kind of funeral home?
Boy: Well, I’ve gotta run!
Anna: Thanks for giving us the great tour!
Anna: Captain, that was awesome! And your son is a great tour guide!
Captain: What son?
Captain: I’ve never seen that boy in my life! See ya, ladies!
