…..the older children were doing evening chores when I noticed T13 seemed to be doing more wandering around than work.

I pulled him up on this, saying ‘Son, you don’t seem to be doing an awful lot of work right now.’

To which he replied, with a twinkle in his eye, ‘I’m moving my muscles which requires force and I’m covering distance. ┬áTherefore I am working.’

I raised an eyebrow.

He continued, ‘Well, Work equals Force times Distance. ┬áTherefore I conclude that I must in deed be working!’

There’s not much I can say to that, is there?
