The Boy was recently re-introduced to Bill Nye, the Science Guy, and remembered how much he adores him. Tonight, instead of indulging in his obsession of watching strange cartoon-based YouTube videos, he was laughing and giggling, and not being very secretive at all. Turns out, he was recording audio from a Bill Nye video and altering it so that Bill Nye would be saying incorrect things, which, to him, is HILARIOUS.
Afterward, we were joking about it. This particular episode was about the planets, and he concentrated on the portion of the video in which Bill said the planets circle the sun in a counter-clockwise motion. He had cut out the “counter” portion of the audio. I told him you can’t just change the direction of the planets because winter would be summer, morning would be night, and as you got older, you would get younger…
“What does that even MEAN?” he laughed.
I said, “It would mean that as you got older, you would become more and more like a baby.”
“And then, you would go back to pre-birth,” he added.
Uh… Ahem… Where are we going with this, I wondered…
“Yep, you would have to go back in the womb,” I said.
“What’s a womb?”
Uh-oh… “The place in the mommy where babies form,” I said simply.
“After they come from heaven?”
“Yep, after they come from heaven,” I said.
Whew… That was close. And I don’t even remember talking about babies coming from heaven, but I don’t mind that. That’s cool.
He is so flipping smart. I love that kid.
