(We have been learning about the periodic table)
Sam: Mom, do you think I should add Argon to my metal team?
Me: Argon is not a metal.
Sam: I know that, but there is no gas team and if there was they would be evil and Argon is not evil. So, do you think I should add Argon to the metal team?
Me: I don’t think I would, because the name of the team is “The Metal Team.”
Sam: What if I told you that it’s origin was from a machine that could turn gas into metal and turn metal back into gas? And what if I told you that Argon was a person and he absorbed all of himself and then climbed into the machine and became a metal? Argon is really cool.
Me: I guess it would be okay then.
Sam: Maybe we could add a few more gasses to the metal team. This could be really interesting. I need to go think about other elements; like Argon’s best friend Carbon.
