Scientific experiment, STL, 170814

DnA suddenly decided that there would be a scientific experiment for the education and edification of KTB, and they chose one that involved baking soda, vinegar, a glass bottle, and a balloon.

D measured out the last of the baking soda:

KTB put it in the glass bottle, which held some vinegar:

I think The Booda was recording and documenting all this on his laptop, but I am not sure:

He certainly seemed happy with his efforts, though.

The balloon filled up, satisfyingly but not fully, with carbon di oxide gas:



Now I'd like KTB to realize that all the cooking done in the kitchen, that gets the food on the table, is also a series of chemical reactions, starting from the setting of her favourite "thayir" (yogurt)!

Time

The days pass by
Like small notes
Slipped under the door
To someone who will come home
Only later.
Later is a time that arrives
Almost at once;
And the moment that makes up the present
Becomes the past, with each tick
Of the clock;
Living only in memory.
Existing only in chronicles and history.
Life slips away
In the leaves, torn daily,
From the calendar
That mark the inexorable passage
Of time...and our lives upon this earth.
