“Mom, how much did that bowl on the table cost?”
“Why?” I asked suspiciously.
“Just tell me how much it cost,” insisted Alex.
Sharp as a tack, I immediately catch on. “Were you playing around with the Lazy Susan?”
He confessed, "I forgot about centrifugal force."
What I liked was Alex owned up to the crime immediately and had a good physics based explanation for his lapse. I have a strong suspicion he was going to offer to pay for the bowl. Good mistake recovery. I told him to forget about it; the bowl wasn’t expensive. This was not exactly true, but why would I leave this stuff around the house with a 13-year-old boy? On a Lazy Susan? I have to accept some of the blame.
I actually have a small collection of mid-century Bauer pottery pieces. You can learn all about Bauer pottery from this book.
And speaking of the laws of physics, our contractor is displaying Newton’s first law of physics, "a body in motion will stay in motion.” We are simply not having any of the typical problems people have with contractors. We are so relieved. Again, we had another rip-roaring week of progress. Two coats of stucco were applied to the exterior walls - the scratch coat and then the brown coat.
On the inside we saw dry wall go up and hole patching! Whoot whoot.

"What are you using to cover it?"
