Crazy Monday nights.

Dear Aunt Jackie or Grandma-

One of you, purchased The Kid, an Earth and Science Encyclopedia a couple years back.
To refresh your memory, the title reads:

Earth & Space
A fascinating question and answer book featuring amazing facts about our world and the Universe.


Whomever is responsible,
We do not thank you.
Last night, he literally carried it from after school....until bed.

I can not tell you how many times he began a sentence with:
"Did you know..."

And how many times I nearly responded:
"For the love of all that is good and holy, I don't know and I don't care!!"

Please admit your guilt.
If he picks that book up again this evening, I will be calling you.
Then you, may have the opportunity to answer fascinating questions, such as:

How do astronauts wash themselves?
What is a white giant?

and the best one...

What will happen to your body, if you are sucked into a black hole?

Answer:
In the last moments before you disappear forever into a black hole, the force of gravity would stretch your body apart until you are pulled into 'spaghettified" pieces.

I'll expect a confession, by 3:00pm today....have your Google warmed up and handy.

PS- If you get either of the girls' names in the Christmas exchange, please give them Barbies. I would rather watch Barbies kiss, than learn how people wash themselves in space.

Hilarious! I did not know that someone could be too curious or be too interested in learning. They can. If you do not believe, spend some one on one time with the kid. He can make you feel like you know nothing! (Nor do I want to know everything.)

that kid will be paying for your 'assisted living' someday... both of you! - sent from 1700 miles away.

Are you kidding me? I hope my boys grow up to be obsessed with science!! At the moment, if they watch Cars one more time, I may scream.

I think the Kid is doing great! I remember my little brother at that age taking cap guns and shooting them off at either your butt or your ear, it wasn't as fun to me as it was to him! Trust me a little book sounds pretty safe from this angle!

I dont know....the last time I played dolls with Tink, she named the dolls Flag girl and Doc, and had them do lots of kissing....haven't played since.

I don't remember if I gave him that book, but if I did, it was because you told me to.--Jackie

Dork stories are my favorite. No, scratch that. Tink talk is still my favorite, but dork stories are a very close second.

The Kid is an awesome kid. Glad to be part of his family. Keep up with the questions, but most likely you may have to have answers since Mom amd Dad won't know. Love you...Gramma C
