Not the Lunar Effect–Than What?

Today the kids were off the chain–the kids at school and the kids at home.

My husband pointed up to the weather clock showing the full moon as if the moon could explain it. I think he knows that the Lunar Effect is said to be a myth (see http://faculty.washington.edu/chudler/moon.html and http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/lunacy-and-the-full-moon/), yet still when he can connect behavior to the moon, he does.

Many people will swear, though, that the moon is responsible.

When I worked in the restaurant business, we dropped more trays and broke more glasses on the night of a full moon.

Today was the Thursday before the Thursday of spring break–does that explain the behavior?

Spring is in the air–does that explain the behavior?

Pollen is in the air–does that explain the behavior?

Everybody is tired and ready for a break–does that explain the behavior?

Let’s just blame it on the moon–that way tomorrow the problems will wane (LOL).

  1. I love the pun at the end! I don’t care what scientists say, I blame the moon, too. It affects my kids at school and home, too. In fact, my oldest was born on a full moon. There hadn’t been a baby born at the hospital in three days, and then there were 15 born on the full moon!
