These are just some of the questions posed to me by Laura this week:
How do snakes breathe?
Which is smaller, a brook or a creek?
What is helium made of?
Did you know that water can bend?
What is the difference between a well and a dell; that is, dell as in “The Farmer in the Dell?”
Are there any other ways to measure temperature besides Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin?
And then there was this conversation:
Laura: “Mom, can psychology be taught?”
Laura: “Biology can be taught, but can psychology be taught? I mean, can someone teach psychology?”
Laura: “I know one suggestment that could be taught in psychology.”
Mom: “What would that be?”
Laura: “If you are hungry, don’t think about food.”
Mom: “That sounds like a good suggestion.”
Laura: “Oh, suggestion. Suggestment is a word too.”
Mom: “I don’t think so.”
Laura: “Yes, it is.”
No wonder my brain is tired by 9 AM each day.
