Bookgirl was reading about nuclear power in her science book today, and the book mentioned the Chernobyl disaster. Bookgirl was amazed by the account. "Did this really happen?" she asked.
"Yes," I replied. "I remember the news accounts--I was alive at the time, you know."
From across the room, Kitten looked up, a suspicious frown on her face. "Did you cause it?" she asked sternly.
Oh, my. My children think I'm capable of causing a nuclear meltdown. Maybe I ought to learn to write with a little less forcefulness.
