Hank: Mama, I am gonna try my arroz (rice) sozinho (alone) to see if it is different than with the avocado.
Me: Sure. That is a good experiment. Can you say that?
Me: Very good. Do you know what kind of person uses experimentation in their work?
Hank: Pai? OH! Scientists.
Hank: And your science is art.
Me: Kinda. I also do a ton of experimentation with my art and drawing to find new ideas.
Hank: (pause for chewing) It does. My rice is different sozinho (alone).
Pai: Good observation.
Hank: Mama, please help me say that.
Me Ob- ser-va-tion (with Hank repeating after each syllable)
Pai: An observation is what you see or learn from an experiment.
Hank: My food is science?
Pai: It could be.
Me: For now I prefer the act of experimentation and observation while actively eating.
Hank: (bites) Yum. Food science is yummy.
Pai: Especially when made by your Mãe.
Me: Why thank you scientists.
Hank: How many experiments do I need to get sobremesa (dessert)?
