in funny to me at least,my girls

Sage has been interested in the Titanic lately, having heard a little bit about it. While we tried to explain in the least scary terms possible what happened, and how it’s very unlikely to happen again, she was still curious. And so she asked my mom in her words what the problem was exactly.

“Well,” Grandma said, “back then, the Captains on ships didn’t have any instruments.”

“That’s not true,” said Sage. “I saw. He had a piano.”

I just plain love it! Apparently the piano must have been out of tune or something because it completely missed warning anyone about that iceberg

Sometimes it’s nice to blog for your own memory’s sake.

What a lucky grandma! To have seen the girls swimming in their indoor pool and to be privy to Sage’s sagacity. Priceless.

Man, if only someone had thought of throwing the piano at the iceberg, all those lives could have been saved! Hindsight is 20/20, I suppose.
