Science and Sensibility

While driving home from church in one-million degree heat in Richmond, Virginia....

Mommy (feeling like Einstein): "See that lady over there? She is very smart to wear all white in this weather. White reflects the suns rays and actually keeps you cooler. Black absorbs all the light shining down and a lot of heat.  White was a smart call."

Darren: "She's not that smart. She's carrying a bag of tacos. Wearing white when you're going to eat tacos is not a smart call."

Point well-taken. I salute his experienced perspective

LOL Darren never ceases to amaze me with his wit.
Smart boy!

Rebecca said...

Note to self: Do not wear white if eating tacos...he's hysterical!

Yep, bad call - tacos & white = impending mess.
Love how smart he is. He got it from you.

It's kind of like wearing white to a wine tasting event...not too smart.

ha! too funny! What a quick retort on Darren's part! I tempted fate today...spaghetti + white t-shirt on Sarah. Amazingly, her efforts to stay clean prevailed! Whew! The Oxi Clean can rest in the cupboard (for now).

Oh...I can TRY to wear white, but lo there WILL be a food mark on it somewhere by the end of the day.

So smart...both so logical and nonchalant with their observations...love them!

He's a smart one, your Darren. I assume the same goes for lasagna, pizza and, if you're me, anything that's not clear!

LOL! Oh man. How do you keep from bursting out laughing (and bursting from pride at the same time) ALL THE TIME with these two?! :)
