Helping Julianna with her homework (she’s 9).
Instructions: “Roll the number cubes to randomly forward your personal representation on the gaming platform.”
Me (to Lynn, The Fun Time’s wonderful Mommy on the other side of the house): Honey, what is a “number cube?” And what is a “personal representation?”
Lynn (from a distant location in the house): They are “dice” and “the race car or shoe from Monopoly.”
Because a 9-year-old would understand this. A middle aged daddy, not so much.
(And, yes, “dice” are now called “number cubes.”)
