Comedienne in the Family

Iris was crushed when another little girl told her that she was not funny. I beg to differ.

When she was 3 years old, we took her to the Beyond Geometry exhibit at LACMA. After seeing the Robert Morris’ Hanging Slab (cloud), we encountered the untitled white box sitting on the floor. Ever the eager meteorology teacher, I said, “Sometimes the cloud sits on the ground. Do you know what we call clouds sitting on the ground? Fog.”

Not skipping a beat, she replied, “Sometimes, the white boxes on the ground are really, really long. Do you know what we call them? Sidewalks.”
