Benedictine or Tibetan?

This morning over breakfast my seven-year-old, who seems rather fixated on how quickly time passes these days, noted that "The year seems like a month!"

At that point my three-year-old, who either doesn't hear clearly or has a very developed sense of humor (I'm betting on the latter, based on experience) echoed, "The year sings like a monk!"

Given the events of this year, I'm inclined to picture the year singing like the monks in Monty Python's "Holy Grail", complete with the smacking of heads with boards.
