Madi: Do you know what extraordinates me? Whenever I think of creation I think of my children's Bible because I used to read that story all the time. I loved the pictures so much. But now I know about cells and amino acids and organs and the cow's four stomachs and think how much God had to really make when he created the world. It isn't just the pictures that I like of birds flying and fishing jumping out of the sea. That is extraordinary.
There is nothing better than inventing new words. I invented one myself yesterday when my daughter was teasing me about being afraid of the dentist. I told her that I am not afraid. It is just sensible to avoid people in the business of causing others crippifying pain. That is my new word.
Speaking of words, I asked the kids what was the difference between disturbing and creepy. This is the answer I received:
Creepy is a ghost story. Sitting next to a naked guy is disturbing.
And a final fun with words inspired by my hilarious kids: Playwright or don’t play at all.
