It’s a good thing my husband understands how TV works, and is good at explaining things. But there is a part of me that feels like I’ve failed the female race by not having a better understanding of scientific concepts.
So I may spend some time boning up on some of these fundamental concepts, so that I’m better equipped to answer those inevitable “Why is the sky blue?” questions. But I have a feeling that the answer is often going to be, “Go ask your father.”
So it goes. At least, when the time comes, I can teach her how to drive stick.
