the last two frames of this kill me
Many adults are put off when youngsters pose scientific questions. Children ask why the sun is yellow, or what a dream is, or how deep you can dig a hole, or when is the world’s birthday, or why we have toes.
Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before a five-year-old, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that you don’t know? Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys many adults. A few more experiences like this, and another child has been lost to science.
There are many better responses. If we have an idea of the answer, we could try to explain. If we don’t, we could go to the encyclopedia or the library. Or we might say to the child: “I don’t know the answer. Maybe no one knows. Maybe when you grow up, you’ll be the first to find out.

Day 1 of my year of tea.
Today is my 21st birthday (woopwoop!) and it seems like a good day to start a resolution for the year.
Seems fitting that Read My Lips be my first tea since it was one of my first loose-leaf tea purchases (from Davids Tea like almost all of my teas). It has remained one of my favourites, if not my favourite, over the last 2 years. This will be an interesting endeavor and one I am going to try really hard to keep with. Bringing you a picture of the day’s tea as well as a description of anything relevant that is going on in my life.
