Life in the library

Me to 2nd grader, "I can't wait to see your class for their field trip at the library! We're going to do a really cool and messy art project."

2nd grader, looks at me dubiously, "I don't like messy things. Or anything that gets my hands messy. Or art projects that make a mess. I don't like getting clean afterwards either."

Me, "so basically you like to preserve your equilibrium at all times"

2nd grader, "what?"

Me, "you don't like to change"

2nd grader, still dubious now that I have been revealed as the creator of mess and not just the purveyor of awesome books "can I just read a book instead?"
