On the train to somewhere… December 27, 2011

So there I was on the train minding my business when a family came on. They were chatting obviously excited with Christmas so closed. I smiled to my self and continued reading my book.

“Don’t you know what a watt is?”, the mother’s voice pierced through my concentration. “It’s something to do with light…lightbulbs”

One of the boys was working on a sheet, “who discovered gravity,  Mummy?”

“Newton, but he didn’t ‘discover’ gravity he just used experiments to confirm his theory” The Dad’s voice was sure and quite. 

“”I hated physics in school. I just couldn’t get it”, said the Mother peevishly. She brought out her iPhone. “Especially optics. It was twenty years ago…”

The boy, who was sitting next to me, murmured confidently, “Well, I am going to be a scientist”
