Funny kids, lazy blog-post

The kids have piano right after school on Mondays. On the drive over today Angus was reciting his speech on space (in French) to me and Eve. He talked about black holes, Neil Armstrong, and the constellations (yep, it's a little disjointed -- I figured his teacher would call him on it, but it appears I was wrong). After he was done, this was our conversation.

Me: That's cool, but I thought you were going to talk about spaghettification.

Angus: Oh yeah. I can still put that in.

Eve: What's that?

Me: It's when a person or object is sucked into a black hole, they get pulled into a long skinny shape. It's called spaghettification.

Angus: also, time stops.

Me: Yeah, but if your watch stops you're probably not concerned about it if you're being spaghettified.

Eve: If you're spaghettified do you die?

Me: Pretty much, yeah.

Eve: Then I'm going to put it on my list of Things That Would be Fun if They Didn't Lead to Death.

If only your family lived closer, I could get all my stomach exercises out of the way just by laughing at the crazy things you guys talk about.

What else is on her list?

Nicole said...

I am totally making a list about things that would be fun if they didn't lead to death. That is the greatest list ever.

Amber said...

I was going to ask the same question as Magpie. What else would be fun if it didn't kill you? I'm going to guess stuff like riding down waterfalls, but that's how I think, and I'm much more pedestrian than Eve is.

LOL! Eve is such a funny girl! I, too, would be interested to know what else is on her list. Does she have a list of fun things to do that wouldn't lead to a painful and untimely death?

Sounds like some of the conversations that happen around here ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today-I love making new blog friends. Yes that was my yoga comment (I have trouble telling which ones belong to which, too). My Mom laughed for weeks about it when I told her...and she told all of her friends...
