So, I haven’t started painting, yet. Some might say I’m procrastinating. Some might say I’m just doing an extra good job with my prep work. Cleaning, spackling, sanding, caulking. Who doesn’t love caulk? Still others might say it was just too glorious of a long weekend to stay indoors. All good theories. All correct.
Since the painting hasn’t officially started, I figure I can cheat on my forced vacation. Also, because the Preschooler was in his usual good form at lunch the other day, and I don’t want to forget. Per Husband’s transcription service:
Him: Daddy, why does the sky get dark?
Husband: You mean at night?
Husband: Well, the earth is turning all the time. During the day, the place we live on the earth is facing the sun, so it’s bright. But then the earth turns around so we’re facing away, like in a shadow, so it’s dark. And for people who live on the other side of the earth, like in China, it’s daytime for them.
Him: (long pause and pondering) You mean the China people only come out at night?
Yes, son, exactly. That’s why we lock the doors.
