And The Four-Year-Old’s *new* favorite color is….

The Four-Year-Old, decisively: “Gold.”

Mother, a bit chagrined at how expensive her daughter’s tastes are already getting: “Why?”

The Four-Year-Old: “Because it’s rare and it was cooked in a star that died long ago.”

Mother surreptitiously Asks the iPhone and finds  Cosmic Crashes Forging Gold (Max-Planck-Gesellschaft).

Mother: “Huh. Well, I suppose that’s ok.”

(Not that The Four-Year-Old read that article, you understand. She learned about the cosmic origin of gold on an episode of Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking.)
