A Brief Conversation Between my Wife and my 7-Year-Old Son November 20, 2014

Posted by Sobek in News.

Mrs. S: So, do you like school?

Kiddo: No, it’s hard.

Mrs. S: What’s hard about it?

Kiddo: It’s hard when we do Chemistry.

Smart kid. Tell him chemistry is like making cookies. Then make cookies. At that point he might like chemistry a little more…depending on how many chocolate chips are in the cookies.

That’s some advanced school! Post a pic of him in his little goggles.

Hey, where’s Brewfan been?

4. Retired Geezer - November 21, 2014

Brewfan wasn’t able to take Chemistry. They didn’t have any safety goggles big enough.

OSHA fail.

I was trying to explain to him the difference between a p-orbital and an s-orbital, and he kept zoning out. I wonder if he has ADHD…

6. Lipstick - November 23, 2014

Well, I really wasn’t associating Brewfan with chemistry — it just suddenly occurred to me that I haven’t seen him around lately and I blurted it out.

I haven’t seen him around lately and I blurted it out.

Blurt Alert!

Hi Lips.

It’s hard when we do Chemistry.

That’s what your mom said.

9. sobek - November 25, 2014

Okay, I’ve been stuffing him full of Ritalin for the past week, but when I tried to explain the difference between ionic and covalent bonds, he didn’t get it at all. Either it’s not ADHD, or else I need to step up my game:

10. geoff - November 25, 2014

Chemistry is just a word for the drugs we want to do together.

11. lauraw - November 25, 2014

Sobek, this might be an opportunity for you to explain the facts of life to the lad. “Ionic bonds are like, when you’re just holding hands with a girl in the coat room. Covalent bonds are more like when you marry her, and she ruins your whole life.”
