Yesterday afternoon, it was a little foggy. Make that a lot foggy. When I walked to the bus stop to get my son, my face was literally wet from the moisture.
The kids getting off the bus, thought it was totally cool to have so much fog. "We can't even see the grass!" they said. (You could see the grass, but not very well.)
Of course my son had something else to say. "Mama, we're breathing clouds!"
The other kids heard him and got nervous. "Are we going to die?" they asked.
"I hardly think so," I said. "It's just a lot of water vapor. Like cold steam. You'll be just fine."
"But what if the clouds go back up, and the clouds are inside of us? Are we going to float up to the sky?" another kid asked.
"No," I answered. "You're too heavy. Gravity will keep you down."
"Yeah," my son said. "But just in case, you'd better blow out the clouds so they don't turn you into a cloud balloon. Because then you'd definitely float up to the sky."
Right. So ladies and gentlemen, if you happen to breathe in a cloud, exhale as quickly as you can,and hold your breath until you reach the safety of a cloud-free zone. Otherwise you might float away.
