Sprite had been to visit one of her school friends.
”Why did her eyes go all glazy, like that?” she asked when I picked her up.
I thought I could guess the reason. Sprite can always turn the conversation to one of her passion subjects and most of her classmates have no interest in them.
She hates to write but she can talk all day without a pause for breath.
“What were you talking about?” I asked
”Harmonic motion of the planets”
”And how long had you been talking?”
”I don’t know – it wasn’t as long as a school double period.”
”Do you think she is as interested in astronomy as you are?”
”I don’t know.”
”Well, what were you talking about before that? How did you start talking about planets?”
”She said she was going to wear stick on stars on her face for the party.”
