Me: Oh, we should put this away as it's the year of the Dragon now.
Mother: Dragon? What are you talking about? It's seahorse!
Me: Haha! There's no year of the seahorse!
Mother: It's not 'ryuu', it's 'tatsu'. It's a seahorse.
Then my mother looked up some calendars online which she was sure would be covered in seahorse pictures to celebrate the new year. Of course, there were no seahorses - only dragons. Sorry mother!
