P. was talking with Glammy yesterday and the subject of “a minute” came up. P. told her, “A minute is a long time.”
I have a bad feeling she learned this from me.
“Mommy will be there in a minute.”
“I’ll get you a snack in a minute.”
“I just want to look at the iPad for a minute.”
“Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.” -Albert Einstein
Obviously, I’m teaching her science.
