Don't Ask If You Don't Like the Answer

My mom clued me into the fact that LittleBird has gotten very good at opposites. I suppose I knew that, but it isn't something we've actively worked on lately. Read: I assumed she already knew them and didn't think to make a big deal out of it. Bad mommy!

Yesterday, after Hubbie picked us up from the airport, my daughter pipes up from the back seat:

LB: What is the opposite of light?

NATUI: Dark!

LB: What is the opposite of dark?

NATUI: Light!

LB: What is the opposite of fast?

NATUI: Slow!

LB: What is the opposite of sign?

NATUI: Blink...Did you say "sign"?

LB: Yes! What is the opposite of sign?

NATUI: Cosine.

LB: Cosine?

NATUI: Yup! You got it!

Hubbie tries, somewhat successfully, to stay in his lane. Her teachers at the preschool are going to hate me.

I was just thinking to myself that there weren't enough geometry jokes around the blogosphere. Thanks for taking up the slack, NATUI.

I was never good at trigonometry.

Dammit, Freeman, why you gotta go throwing "otry"s in there before I can?
