TMI Sunday 160


“Dad, why are trees dying?”

“Well, son, trees go into a hibernation mode
and chlorophyll begins to fade
leaving carotenoids as the primary pigments..."

“Huh?”

For the original Sunday 160 post click here.


If you wish to take the challenge, here is a quick look at the rules:


1. The Sunday 160 only uses 160 characters (including spaces).
2. Keep on schedule - post Sunday.
3. Let me know you have posted via a comment on my site.
4. Visit at least one other Sunday 160.

Heehee. Yup, sometimes we overload the answer with more than they asked...oops! Nice 160. Keep thinking I'm going to try this, but I'm so verbose...not sure I could do it...

Nessa said...

Yes, he could leaf most of that out. Reminds me of the "talk."

I had a similar experience with my nephew. He was so relieved to hear that the trees would come back in spring!

Really, sometimes science is NOT the best answer.

My 160 is here.

Caty said...

lol! Love the photo with your 160- fits perfectly.

gospelwriter said...

Great 160! "Huh?" indeed. :) Can't say I love the expression on the boy's face, but what an expressive face it is - great catch of a pic.

Mine is here.

Thanks!

Caty said...

Matty said...

You don't have to be a kid to go "huh" to that. LOL

PattiKen said...

I got a similar reaction when trying to have that conversation.

As proof that I am world-class when it comes to avoiding work, I’m in with Nag, Nag, Nag!.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Heading towards 60, I'm still the kid that says "Huh?" Okay sometimes I'm also the adult that makes others say that. :-)

Here's my second 160.
Su-sieee! Mac
This and That. Here and There. Now, Sometimes Then.

I ain't afraid of no wood chipper, Monkey Man. If humans are below dolls in the pecking order, than a monkey man is at the bottom. Har har. Don't mess with Dale the Doll as Halloween gets closer....
