Caden has joined the "Icky, Sticky Science" Club at school. Last night he made . . . uh . . . some warm green stuff. Yeah, I don't know what it is. He tried to explain it to me. The most important thing, he said, was not to eat it, that it is poison.
Last night, he dressed up in a suit, tie, bandanna, and a batman glove to pretend to create "Bob". He used his warm, green goo to create a monster that needs no brain to exist (we saw Monsters vs Aliens last weekend).
vinegar is an alkaline.
I took his word for it at the time (and double checked it later).
When a 7 year old knows the word alkaline . . . you can be pretty sure he knows what he's talking about. It's not exactly the kind of word he could make up.
