Chemistry quiz answers

Because curb girl wanted to know (although I think the quiz can stand on its own, using your imagination for the "right" answers), here are the correct answers in my world to the previous post's chemistry quiz. Please keep in mind that Chem was my absolute worst subject in school--the only D I ever earned was on a Chem final. Moles are critters in the ground, not whatever quantity 6 x 10 to the -23 power is. Or 6.02. Whatever. I got a D. That's the important lesson. NEver trust me with chemicals. Or children and chemicals. Or a batch of fresh-made chocolate chip cookies, because I will inhale every single one of them until I am sick.

Anyway, the answers:

1. Liquid. The cereal has congealed with milk by the point that the 3 year old loses interest in it entirely.

2. Solid. The liquid falls through the cracks in the booster seat leaving the solid mushy contents on the chair.

3. Liquid if you catch them in enough time. Solid if they have time to bond with the three day old cheerios stuck to the side of the chair.

4. Solid. There has been a chemical reaction which no amount of stain remover can undo.

5. Gas. Of course. That was an easy one. Apple-prune juice's prime function in a baby's life is to relieve constipation and the by-product of that relief is gas. Usually given off at a most inopportune time, like in the middle of a movie or in the car when it's pouring down rain and you can't open the windows.

6. Fucking mess. Actually, it's a liquid-soaked solid. If you get there in enough time.

7. A trick question. A mother in this scenario has no brain to speak of, so technically, it's a vacuum.

Who's up for babysitting and cookie splitting?
