in planned postings, but I had to tell this little story before I forgot. Easily done these days, some days I hardly know if I am Arthur or Martha. Sad state given my age, my husband tells me. I must be lacking in something (ignoring husband's solution to problem, which is a typically male solution to ANY health problem!) so any supplement you know of that boosts brain function, do tell!
ANYHOW, the other day:
Georgie (randomly and without any prompting) as we walk down the road: Hey mum! I think its going to precipitate!! I can tell there has been lots of evaporation and condensation happening!
Me (mentally; WTF?!! they must doing the water cycle at school AGAIN!) Verbally: do you reckon....what exactly does PRECIPITATE mean Georgie?!
Georgie: (der Mum mentally, slight roll of eyes) it means RAIN! do you think it will precipitate? (obviously enjoying the tricky way the word rolls off the tongue).
