First of all, thanks to everyone for your kind comments from my last post. Still dealing with a lot of difficult things, but just trying to remember that, "This too, shall pass!"
Now for more of my usual light-hearted stuff:
Bubba needed a UV flashlight (AKA black light flashlight).
"What do you need that for?" I asked.
"A science project."
Okay. Strange request. After basically searching the planet, we located one. (Of course he tells me this the night before it's needed.)
"Mama, roll up your sleeve," he said once we got home.
"Why?" I asked.
"I have to check something."
I shook my head and rolled up my sleeve. He turned on the flashlight and shined the light beam on my arm.
"Hmmm," he said.
Then he rolled up his sleeve and shined the beam on his arm. A lot of white particles appeared on his skin.
He nodded. "This shows things the human eye cannot see."
"Yeah?" I asked. "And what is it that you can now see?"
"That you're clean, and I'm dirty!"
