The other day in the car:
Lewis: Mom, Dad (note how he adresses me first, but wisely adds his father!), you know, I was wondering, since the stuff in batteries is so poisonous and acidic, how can it give you energy?
Wyatt answers in a very complicated, detailed and knowledgeable way, because he is educated, smart and knows just about everything. Even though I know how smart he is I am amazed and impressed and listen in awe, barely understanding the half of it.
Then me: ... (thoughtful) ... if it was for me, we would still live in the Stoneage. But we would be warm, real warm!
