Today's Advent packet: sticky page markers. There was also an orange set but Grandson took them home with him. He'd never seen any before and plans to use them to mark the chapter in his bedtime story book.
We went on a bus today. He loves bus travel and observes everything with much seriousness. The other day he pointed out that with some traffic lights, even when a colour isn't lit up, you can still see what the colour of the glass is; whereas with others, the glass appears completely black when not lit. Moreover, with the former kind, the glass of the green light looks dark blue.
"Why, Granny?" Ummm... . I had to admit that I'd never noticed. Traffic lights are not my specialist subject.
His dad: Hmm. Well, there aren't really any such things as invisibility potions.
Grandson: Maybe we could just pile some things up in front of her?
(To put this in context, we'd been reading a book which featured invisibility potions and an annoying little sister... .)
