Maybe he feels the Earth’s rotation…..

Later the same day of the asparagus man encounter, I went into a little shop because I had never been before.  There was a little boy and his mom behind the counter generally occupying themselves with papers and toys.  As I was passing them on my way out of the store, I heard the little boy ask:

“Mom, why is the ground moving?”

I think the funniest part was that I looked at the mother, who was nonchalantly answering his question (too quietly for me to hear), and her expression was completely unaffected, as if this was a normal type of question to be asked of a child standing on solid ground…..

    Little kids are usually alot more sensitive to sensory inputs than adults….sometimes they see or sense something but diagnose it erroneously for example the feeling of the ground moving might be nothing but mild dizziness.

    Now having said that, I feel the ground moving all the time…and I’m a fully grown adult (or so they tell me)…infact I sometimes feel the ground dance……

    hahahaha that’d be awesome. Just randomly start dancing because, well, the ground was!
    That’s interesting though about the kids 🙂
