Science in his sleep
I always knew that my husband was smart about science. I, on the other hand, know how to spell science, but that’s about all I can say. He further proved my point the other night. There was a really strong storm that woke us up around 5AM. I was groggy because I had just been in a deep sleep. My tired mind struggled to even ask the question, “Is that…hail?” “Yes, it is,” he quickly replied. “Apparently the storm must have some strong convective activity.” It wasn't until I woke up later that I marveled that he not only knew such an obscure science fact, but he was able to recall it at 5AM. Even my most alert self couldn’t recall this fact because, well, I’m still not sure what convective activity is. I can rest easier knowing that – day or night – Husband will have an answer to my every science question.
