Lunar Molecular Astro-Solar Oscillation and an orange slug
One more week at school after today so we are sort of chilling doing easy stuff so today we discussed Lunar Molecular Astro-Solar Oscillation. I am sure it was the physics teachers fault; all I said was I have got my telescope back from Miss E who gave up looking into space when she realized all the boys on the Astronomy class that meets after school in the dark of evening spend all night looking into space. It was very chilled and the whole class had to agree that afterwards not one of us had a clue what the teacher was talking about. But looking knowledgeable and nodding in a knowledgeable way, going AH and pretending to take notes has seen most of the class successfully get through many subjects. Dad says this skill is something very important because with this skill we could all become politicians or bankers.
Today has also involved the colour orange firstly we discovered a rather interesting orange slug, none of us remember seeing an orange slug before so it was quite interesting. The dog thought it might be clockwork; he said it seemed very possible that it was a Clockwork Orange Slug before falling about in Hysterics. Anyway it turns out that this slug is just the right colour for the music room. It’s called a music room because it sounds posh and will end up with all the music stuff in so not really posh more practical. So we went off to get paint the same colour as the slug.... This seemed simple enough but not when you have to deal with shop assistants who are afraid of slugs and shop managers who insist that slugs are banned from the shop. Why would anyone ban a slug from a DIY store, OK they are not going to spend a lot, but on the other hand they are quiet and courteous and have never been known to steal DIY equipment. OK if it was a greengrocer then yes they have been known to nibble the odd lettuce without paying.
In the end we managed to get the paint by sticking the slug on the outside of the window, the dog very kindly licking the window clean afterwards, Yes slugs are a bit slimy (very slimy) but he is back home now, well next door as it happens, dad throw him over the stream saying the grass is greener on the other side to the slug who foolishly believed him. Mum said the slug was an IDIOT.
