Conversation with 13 while studying science……
“Oh my god, are we close to the Milky Way?” - 13 asked frantically.
I looked around the room, already knowing where this was headed.
“Well, you could say that.” - Me
I couldn’t help but smile.
“Are you serious? Like how close are we talkin’ here?” – Now she’s worried.
In my best “valley girl” accent I said “like so close that we are “in it” close”
“Are you serious right now?” - her eyes get all big.
“Yes I’m serious. What’s with the big eyed drama?” - At this point I had to know.
“I just read that the Milky Way Galaxy has a super massive black hole in the center of it. And you’re saying we are in the Milky Way? WE COULD GET SUCKED UP!!! I hate studying all this planet crap.” - She storms out of the room all teary eyed.
Yes, she’s my daughter.
She is the epitome of every blonde joke you’ve ever heard.
She is, in fact, blonde.
Yes, I still claim her as mine.
When in the same room with her and discussing anything that could possibly lead to the end of the world (alien invasion, viral outbreak, zombie apocalypse), please whisper. Just trust me on this.
