On A Cold and Drizzly Sunday Afternoon
I think the brain washing is working. I have a little scientist in training. There's even been a request for a lab coat. Please note the hot pink safety glasses that occasionally double as swimming goggles. Also, apparently NASA has won the lottery. There are rocket ships all over outer space. The girlchild said she was planning her trip to Mars to collect soil samples. The bug magnification device is set out for official scientific use. As I scrubbed dishes and washed linens the girlchild was busy labeling her earth and running up and down the hallway asking how to spell this or that.
The Girl: What else Mom?
Me: I think that about covers it. You got Fernley, China, India, New York. What else do you need? (Notice I did not suggest she write Australia...that'd take 6 days for her to spell out)
The Girl: But I still have all this space.
Me: Don't forget about the ocean. Did you know that there's more ocean that there is land?
The Girl: Good idea mom. Then I'll fill in the space with islands. Seven of them. Like Hawaii.
I particularly love that Fernley and Asia look to be about the same size.
