|Grandfather Mountain in Boone, NC|
Taken by Mr. W
Fast forward to my flight, which is the day Mr. W left Boone. I'm on board the second leg of my trip (DC to West Palm Beach) and found myself reading the US Airways magazine. There, among the articles about the Caribbean, destination weddings, luggage, etc., is a huge spread on...Boone, NC--including a paragraph on the hike that Mr. W took. Very woo-woo.
Instant #2 involves Baby Girl and Son #2. Son #2 is a pre-nursing major who's trying to get into the BSN nursing program at his college. His biggest challenge is his anatomy lab class--it's just plain hard memorizing all those bones, etc. Anyhow, his first big test was this past Wednesday, around noontime. Afterward, he texted me that he thought it went well but he got a little confused with the phases of mitosis (I have *no* idea what that means.)
Fast forward to that night at dinner. I was telling Mr. W and Baby Girl what son # 2 has said, and she looked up and said, "That's strange--I was thinking about mitosis today." She explained that she had been doodling in her school planner around noontime (woo-woo!) and when she saw what she had drawn thought it looked like a mitosis phase (and yes, she's that smart that she would liken a drawing to mitosis). Mr. W asked her when the last time was that she had learned about mitosis... That would be two years ago, freshman biology. So, at the same time son #2 is stressing about mitosis, Baby Girl is randomly drawing mitosis (mitoses?). Coincidence? I think not. So woo-woo.
Strange things are happening around here... Any woo-woo in your life lately?
