You Can't Make This Stuff Up

So my Dad and Step-mom took us out for lunch today. And out of nowhere, my oldest son says, "Mom, your face is refracting." ....um, wha?? came to mind. So I say what do you mean and he says, "Mom, refraction is like when you put a pencil in a glass of water and it appears to be broken, but really the view of the mass is distorted."

Ooooookay then. Apparently my 10 year old is a genius. And the light coming through the window at Culver's was not flattering.

Don't look at it as a put-down. Look at it as your child is looking for ways to incorporate his newly acquired vocabulary!
