In the time I have been off ATS...the 40th anniversary of the moon landing happened. This is a sensitive subject at my place. I was raised to question
everything. My spouse--not so much. After several arguments that sadly degenerated into screaming matches, we have agreed to never discuss it with
each other again. Much like 9/11, we are going to talk to the kids in our own time about our own POV and let them consider it. Very grand sounding,
One day, I was disgruntled at one of the ads on TV about reliving the historic moment...so I shut it off with an under the breath comment about 'not
again, more stories' and the kids heard me. Of course they did...so I got questioned. 'What story, Ma?' and so on until I came to the point where I
said in a few years when you have gained some critical reasoning skills we will discuss this. Until then, go play.
Being my children, they went off to whisper in a bedroom and came to ask me more questions. I refused to answer. She leveled me with a stare and
said....just answer one thing, yes or no and I won't pester you about it until I'm older. (Yeah, right!)
Mom, is the MOON FAKE?
LMAO. Other than a 'no, I'm pretty sure the moon is real,' I wandered off content in the knowledge that my children have taken 'question
everything' to a whole new level. Anyone else have astounding experiences with minions?
