“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

“Harry, what are you looking for?”

H: (rooting in the utensil drawer) “I’m doing a science project.”

“What science project is that?”

H: (pulling out a garlic press and a spatula) “I’m turning a watermelon into a fairy.”

“With those?”

H: (running off) “Yes.”

“Good luck with that.  Bring them back when you’re done.”

Let it not be said that I discourage scientific inquiry in this house.

    Very cute!

    If it doesn’t work for him, have him try a colander instead of a spatula. They work better for the watermelon to fairy conversion ratio. Spatulas are for smaller fruits like oranges. oh and if he goes for smaller fruit I suggest swapping the garlic press for a cherry pitter its a mass to mass thing. 😉

    Ulrich, you seem to know a lot about turning fruits into fairies…

    I’m not judging.

    Just sayin.
