I have been so incredibly busy and distracted lately. This morning my son asked for cereal for breakfast. I went to the counter and poured some Mini-Wheats in a bowl but before I had a chance to get the milk my publicist called. After going over some business with her I went to the computer to read my email and check the eharlequin message board to see if there were any new comments regarding my online read For The Love Of A Dog. Twenty minutes later my son tugged on my arm and informed me that he was really hungry. He wasn’t joking this time. I had totally blanked on the cereal.
Anyway a few hours after that he asked how it was possible that the earth could be moving without us noticing it. I said that if you were sitting in a parked car and the car next to you started to move you’d notice because it would pass you. However if the car you were in moved at the same time and at the same speed as the other car the movement wouldn’t be as noticeable although you would still be able to tell that neither vehicle was sitting still because you’d be passing trees and buildings. But if everything was moving at the same speed, including the trees and the like, you wouldn’t be able to tell that you were moving at all. That’s why we can’t see the earth move.
He looked at me, smiled and said, “That’s a pretty intelligent theory for a woman who can’t remember to get me my breakfast cereal.”
You know you’re in trouble when a five-year-old can put you in your place.
