Conversation of the day:
me: solubility is the measure of how well something dissolves
student: are people highly soluble?
me: no. do you dissolve when you get in the bath?
other student: well, the wicked witch of the west was highly soluble.
me: right you are.
And, for your enjoyment, an email exchange between me and The Aunt:
me: Do you know where I can find approximately 20 lumps of coal for 20 ungrateful fourth graders?
her: Buy a bag of charcoal and preferably the kind with the built in lighter fluid so that they can be a fire hazard or chemical hazard also...
And that is why I love her so.
I'll try to email and explain the need for lumps of coal sometime later this evening.
