    "This tree isn't really taller than the other one," she pointed out. "Look at the patch of grass under it, and the size of the branches. It's the exact same picture. They just enlarged it. It's really more like we walked from farther away from the same tree to closer to the same tree. Stupid book."

    I love this. In case you aren't familiar with the Irish show "Father Ted":

    You never know what you're going to hear with DS. The other day when DH returned from work, DS ran up to him and announced in the tone of an Apache war cry, "Ahhhh-ga-ga-ga-ka-ka! Smart feller, fart smeller!" and ran away in a fit of giggles. So random.

    BWHAHAHA smile

    With confusion and mild dismay, I think. Well, that's what happened, anyway. It was clearly a look that called for some rapid explanation on her part, anyway. LOL! wink

    Random thoughts from the backseat...

    DS6 "It is interesting to think what we might be evolving into. I wonder how intelligent the next version of human will be? I am pretty sure I am a human but it seems hard to tell how far along we might be towards something new. Plus, without knowing what the future species would be like, any one person wouldn't know whether they fit better with that group or the past. But yeah, I am pretty sure I am still a human"

    Not a brag but definitely quirky....

    After doing the whole tooth fairy thing for his first lost tooth DS has refused for the past four. He wants to keep them and build a model of his jaw to stick them in so he can study it and he wants to compare them to his adult teeth that are growing in and there were a couple more plans he had that I'm now forgetting. He said all of that was better than the money he would be getting from the tooth fairy. Uhhh sure.

    If it makes you feel any better, my mum told me that, as a child your DS' age, I once suggested that in the unlikely event that I ever needed an amputation, I wanted my body parts to be used for an elaborate Hallowe'en joke. I'm both cringing and laughing at the thought.
