Red Hot Lava [Aug. 31st, 2011|12:42 pm]
Aitchmark

Put 3 or 4 kids between the ages of 6 and 8 in a living room with two sofas & a couple of chairs that have removable cushions, and they'll either build a fort from the cushions or scatter them around and jump from one to the other staying off the floor, which is now "red hot lava".

Nobody teaches them this; they just do it.

Iwas thinking about this for no particular reason today, and realized it's always "red hot lava". Never just lava, or molten lava, or hot
lava... always "red hot lava".

Makes sense. Who would try to avoid beige lukewarm lava?

If I ever retitle my blog, or start a new one I may use that. "Beige Lukewarm Lava, And Other Things That Exist Only In My Imagination"

Pace Dave Berry, I don't think it would make a good name for a rock band. Quite the opposite.

I think the heat is finally getting to me...

Beige lukewarm lava --> beige stone --> sandstone --> red hot sandstone --> glass?

Re: Wow

I am capable of that from time to time. I just don't always do so unless it's funny/punny.

Love you from all of us.
