On surprises.

Mum. When you have a moment, I would like to show you something highly irregular.

On truth.

Fools aren’t born… They’re made.

On bioengineering.

Mum. Hold everything. Did you know that we actually have nearly all the supplies we need to make a human ear?

All we need now is an incubator and a mouse!!!!!!

On information.

[Watching documentary on the origins of the universe]

I love it when they go over the data.

On essentials.

Hey kiddo, I see you’ve brought your calculator to breakfast. Are you planning to do some computation while you eat?

[Fixes me with a cold, fishy stare.]


On the harsh realities.

The world just really isn’t set up for people like our family.

On the mum of mischief.

Mum, I just noticed you walk just like Loki. [Watches me sit down] Ah! And you sit just like him, too.

Maybe that’s why I like him so much – we have the same body language?

Yeah, you’re pretty alike – you have those high cheekbones, too.

I hope I don’t give really bad advice like Loki?

Ha, no. Let’s face it – that would be exceptionally bad for homeschool.
