Just a mildly amusing "kids story" today....
I walked into my daughter Zadi's second grade classroom yesterday, to pick her up, and one of the other kids, Caitlyn, pointed at me and said "Zadi's dad: you're complex!"
"Well," I said, "I'm made of trillions of little particles, but so are you -- we're all complex..."
"Well, hmmm.... Why do you think so?"
She laughed. "Zadi said her dad is complex."
"Well YOU're silly!"
Apparently they were studying the word "complex" at school and the kids were asked to give an example of something complex. Zadi suggested her dad.
I asked her later if she could think of anything more complex than me; her reply: "the universe is one example"....
