HOLY COW!

TODAY....


BRISE: "Hey Mom."

ME: "What?"

BRISE: "What is Quantum Physics?"

ME: 'vacant look....eyes darting around for answers...stumbling to the computer...keypad blazing...'

"ummm....It's the physics of the incredibly small. It describes how electrons surround the nucleus of an atom and other subatomic actions. It gets into gluon plasma and things called quarks...nanotechnology....ummmm....it's all about teeny tiny things and how they work and look. It flows naturally into the ideas of time travel and The Big Bang, The Big Crunch and such also."

BRISE: "Can we learn about that?"

ME: "Sure" (excitedly and freaked out at the same time)

THANK GOD FOR THE INTERNET!
