It takes the Mathematician a long time to get through my books, because he listens to the unabridged audio — and only when he’s in the car. For the past couple months he’s been steadily working his way through Queen of Swords. Every once in a while he asks me questions. Today the truth came out.
M: Do you think they really made the slaves work the Jamaica train for eighteen hours at a time?
R: I based all that on diaries and early documents. It was really insane, what went on during the sugar harvest.
M: Yeah, I know. I looked it up.
R: You were fact checking me?
M: What? It was interesting, so I looked it up.
M: That’s a compliment, you know. That it was so interesting.
R: How long has this been going on? Since the first book?
R: I am officially affronted.
That is so awesome. I love the way boys think sometimes. . .
Shall we have him do the book study questions? Cackle.
Hilarious. So true to a scientific form.
Too funny. It’s great when you catch them, but when they give themselves away…even better!
There are no words! That is TOO funny!
At least you know that he is really reading your work! LOL!
That is very sweet.
