Jim -- I was more concerned about
avoiding questions like:
"Daddy, why is the house shaking?"
"That's Daddy's VED working"
"Daddy, what's a VED?"
Or you could try half truths:
"That's Daddy trying to frighten a mouse out of his hole"
"Oh goody! A mouse -- where is it?"
Or you could try complete lies:
"That's Captain Kirk trying to beam Daddy up to the starship Enterprise"
"Daddy, can I come too?
"Yes of course darling, just step into this closet, and don't come out for 10 minutes. Now where's Mommy?"
Think I'll just settle for a quiet VED
