Science vs. Propriety

Me: “Kathleen, when you get out of the bath you need to dry off your legs.”

Kathleen: “But I like my legs all shiny.”

Me: “You are going to drip all over the place, that’s what water does.”

Kathleen: “No, water can evaporate into a gas. Then it forms clouds in the atmosphere, where it collects into small droplets and falls back to the earth as rain.”

Me: “Well, that’s all true, but … Just dry your legs.”

My daughter is making me anti-education.
