You gotta love elementary school science fairs. Where else would you find a question that poses “which drink makes a plant grow faster: Diet Pepsi, root beer or water?”
And never in my wildest dreams would I think Diet Pepsi would run neck & neck with water.
That’s almost scary, actually. Almost makes me never want to drink soda again. It’s like that nail that gets dropped in a bucket of coke: it disintegrates. I tried it once.
But what I really like at the science fair is seeing Hank, my most adorable son, catapult pieces of red oak across the room, almost taking out the art room window. Favorite quote of the night: “CLEAR THE AREA!”
He didn’t get the top award, but he’s an original thinker who won the attention of a few girls and parents that night.
He captures mine everyday. ❤
