Raising a Legend

So I have recently departed from Facebook, and heard disappointment from family and friends because they aren’t seeing any posts about my conversations with Legend. Then I realized – what better use for this dusty old blog? So, if you are interested in staying in the Legendary Loop, please subscribe to the blog. Feel free to share it with others. Also, if you have any name suggestions for the blog, please post it in the comments below!

Here is a fun little nugget from today…

(Driving in the car)

Legend: Mom, what does “according” mean?

Me: Um… that is really hard to explain. But it means that you have a guide for something you are doing or thinking about. Like if Grandma said that the sky is blue, you could say, “According to Grandma, the sky is blue.” That means that Grandma thinks that the sky is blue. Another example is if I said, “Arrange your cars according to their color,” then you would sort the cars out by color, putting all the blue cars together, all the red cars together, you know.

Legend: Okay. I get it. So what does “to my research” mean?

Me: (laughing) So you are trying to figure out what “according to my research” means? Where did you hear that?

Legend: It’s hard to say.

Me: Okay well, that means that you believe something is true because you have seen it happen or you have read about it.

Legend: Oh ok. Well, according to my research, when volcanoes have little rocks fall in them, and everything starts jiggling around, and it jiggles more and more, and more rocks fall in, then the volcano will EXPLODE! … Is that a good example?

Me: Yes. Yes it is.
