Over the weekend, we had a couple of crazy conversations that I’d like to share:
Kat: "Is there anything smaller than a neutron?"
CJ: "Quarks are smaller than neutrons."
Kat breaks into laughter.
CJ, looking sheepish, rephrased her statement as a question to me: "Quarks ARE smaller than neutrons, right?"
Me, chuckling: "Yes they are."
CJ: "Ok good. Katherine burst into laughter*, and I thought for a minute there I had said something really stupid." (Katherine actually started laughing because she thought CJ had just made up the word “quarks”.)
Me: "I’m just glad that it took Katherine until the 5th grade to be able to cause us to question our knowledge of particle physics."
Kat: "We’ll fix it later with magic tape."
Me: "You mean duct tape?"
CJ: "Ducks are magic?"
Me: "Well, they weigh as much as witches."
