visibly excited, cheering and clapping. I explained to her that the
amount of daylight changes, not the actual amount of time.
Needless to say, she was very disappointed.
My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked
the individual behind the counter for "minimal lettuce." He said he
was sorry, but they only had iceberg.
