Apparently, the average IQ in the United Kingdom is 104.
To be honest I don’t really know if that is good or bad, or what you need to do to achieve that.
But at this point in my life, and as a dad of a three-year-old, it feels as if my intelligence is being put to the test.
You see, Caitlin is asking questions, lots of them.
Whilst we were watching The Jungle Book on DVD she asked where elephants came from.
I remembered that answer from my school days – India and Africa I answered.
I thought the next question would be: ‘Where are India and Africa?’ but she was satisfied with my response and the topic changed direction from wildlife to household cosmetics.
Next up was: ‘Where does talcum powder come from?’
I answered that it’s made from the mineral talc and is finely ground down into a powder form. That was, of course, after I had typed the question into Google. I swiftly changed the subject before she could ask me where minerals come from.
