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.
I would've thought the kids would like to float.ReplyDelete
Maybe they're afraid of falling.Delete
HA! Cloud balloon!ReplyDelete
We can all get vacuums to suck the clouds up and use it to fly!;-)
That' would be great!Delete
Floating would be cool, I'd hold them inReplyDelete
I think floating would be fun, too.Delete
I do love me fog!ReplyDelete
It is kind of mysterious in a way.Delete
That was a learning moment for them with your response about water vapor.ReplyDelete
I'm not sure if they believed my son or me.Delete
LOL! A cloud balloon! Love it. Has your son read Joanna Cole's "The Magic School Bus at the Waterworks"? It's a fun book.ReplyDelete
He probably has. He's read a lot of Magic School Bus books.Delete
That Bubba is a character and could be easier put in any fun kids book. Gold mine, you have there.ReplyDelete
He's a funny one, that's for sure!Delete
Now that would make a neat bookReplyDelete
I could play around with it and come up with a plot.Delete
I think you have the plot for your newest book!ReplyDelete
At least the start of one.Delete
Wise, wise words! Love this! :)ReplyDelete
My boy is a genius.Delete
I like the thought of having clouds inside us. kinda cool!ReplyDelete
What he says makes alot of sense
i like cloudy days
I like cloudy days, too!Delete
This brought to mind a recent incident, one flight took off and had to turn back because it was filling the cabin with fumes from the air-condition ducts. Apparently some gasket was open which should not have been left open....shudder...ReplyDelete
Not good! I'm glad it was caught before anything serious happened.Delete
Maybe the cuteness venom can become an antedote for any cloud balloon symptom. ;))ReplyDelete
Haha! I'll have to ask him.Delete
I'll never think of fog in the same way again, in fact from now on whenever we have fog I'll think of this and smile.ReplyDelete
It's funny how kids can put ideas in your head. Their view of the world is so unique.Delete
Haha, awww. Kids have such great imaginations! :)ReplyDelete
*LOL* Love that! Oh the things kids worry about.ReplyDelete
It's funny, isn't it? I wish my worries were as simple as this!Delete
I would love to breath cloud and fly like a bird.ReplyDelete
Me, too. Let's do it!Delete
I loved fog as a kid! Actually, I still do. :)ReplyDelete
I like fog, too. But I don't like driving in it!Delete
I think I'd have to lose quite a bit of weight before that would be a concern but I love your son's take on things. Priceless.ReplyDelete
Maybe kids are lighter, so it's more of a concern for them. ;0)Delete
LOL! I love kids creativity. Why can't we think as freely as they do? So awesome.ReplyDelete
I think we all used to think like this. What happened? ;0)Delete
Lol.. Kids and their imaginations.ReplyDelete
I love kid imaginations!Delete
That is the most adorable thing ever. I recently drove into the Adelaide Hills and it was so foggy I couldn't see the car in front of me. Which is dangerous when you're driving at 50 miles an hour.ReplyDelete
That's very dangerous! I'd definitely go much slower!Delete
I was on the highway, the speed was already reduced :PDelete
That is funny...I'm surprised they didn't want to test drive that theory.ReplyDelete
I'm sure they would've if they could've.Delete
Floating away sounds kind of fun. I like walking in fog, not so much driving through it.ReplyDelete
Tossing It Out
It would be fun. I wonder where we'd end up?Delete
Swallowing a cloud and floating away might be fun for awhile. Bubba has quite the imagination.ReplyDelete
That he does!Delete
