“Mommyo, what does ‘gravitationally improbable’ mean?”

gravitationally improbable (grv-tshnˈalē m-prb-bl) adj. phrase
that which is unlikely to occur outside of Kitty World due to the limiting effect of gravity

Example:
The Four-Year-Old’s stegosaurus made a gravitationally improbable leap over the Lincoln log fence.

*Thanks to the Free Dictionary for the pronunciation breakdowns for both gravitationally and improbable. Mistakes in transcribing what looks like Greek to me are all mine.

About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
