In the morning.
Me: I got up this morning at 2:05, then again at 6:09, and then again at 8:08.
Queen B: So what?
Me: On my digital clock, 2:05 demonstrates reflectional symmetry, while 6:09 demonstrates rotational symmetry, and 8:08 demonstrates both reflectional and rotational symmetries. What does it mean?
Queen B: Only that you’re a math geek, dear.
Me: Mm-mmmm. That’s sandwich looks good. I can’t wait to eat it.
Butterfly: No, it’s not yours.
Me: It’s not? Who does it belong to, then?
Butterfly: No, me.
Butterfly: No… me.
Me: Nomie? Who is this Nomie person?
Butterfly: Gnomeo and Juliet. Duh.
(She stole the sandwich while I was laughing.)
In the evening.
Ladybug: What’s this?
Me: It’s Elvis Presley’s 1973 concert in Hawaii.
Ladybug: Elvis? Isn’t he, like, a rock star from
the olden days?
Me: He is the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
Ladybug: Oh. So why is he dressed like a cowboy?
Me: [ Snorts unexpectedly ]
Ladybug: Now what’s he doing?
Me: Dancing. Elvis was famous for crazy jerky hip dancing.
Ladybug: Oh. I thought he might be possessed.
