[After conversation in which I described making biscuits and adding garlic, using a different type of fat, and sprinkling cheese on top and then not being terribly fond of them but not being able to say what it was about them that I wasn't so keen on. I then described making eggs by mixing together a couple of eggs with rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper, and milk and heating the whole thing in the microwave for a couple of minutes. I wasn't particularly sold on them either, but again I couldn't tell which of the ingredients was the problem child, or whether it was because I had microwaved them. After that, while we'd been on the phone, I had grumbled about how cold it was upstairs and proceeded to close the door and hang a polar fleece blanket over the windows. After a bit I observed that it had gotten measurably (as in about 4 tenths of a degree) warmer throughout the conversation, but that I wasn't sure whether it was the blanket or the door or both that were responsible for the change, whereupon we had the following exchange]:gipsieee
: You're just having a bad day with the scientific method, hon.
Me: Why do you say that?gipsieee
: Because you keep changing more than one variable!!
