Bring Out the Lead Blanket

Coming into the kitchen for dinner, Lyle: “Wow, my lap still feels warm from that computer I had on it!”

Me: “Oh, I don’t think you should do that. I’m pretty sure it’s not good for your ‘privates’ to have a warm computer on your lap, Lyle.”

Baxter: “Yeah, I think that’s true.” Then, cheerfully: “Bring out the lead blanket!”

Me, staring at him: “Is there anything you don’t know?”

Baxter, earnestly: “Quantum physics.”
