Yesterday the kids brought me a rubber ball with a small pink bunny embedded in it. "Why is the bunny floating above the ground, Mom?" Anda wanted to know.
So I explained how they make the ball and embed the little figure inside, and how the bunny really isn't floating in air inside the clear ball but has the "ball stuff" touching it all over.
The kids listened intently. Then they looked at me like I was an imbecile and said, "Don't lie to us Mom. It's floating because there's no gravity inside the ball. So how do they get the gravity out of the ball?"
