Good math, part 2

I realized that somehow the “Good Math” title got used, without the accompanying story.

“Daddy, I weigh 39 pounds!”
“You’re very big, Opportunity!”
“Spirit, come here. Right up here. OK. Daddy, Spirit and I, together, weigh, um, 71 pounds! OK, Spirit, you can go play.”

(“OK.”)

Oh, boy! A teaching moment.

“Opportunity, how much does that mean Spirit weighs?”
“I don’t know.”
“Can you think of a way to figure it out?”
“Yes.”
“How’s that?”
“Just a minute…”

Silence.

“Ow! No, Opportunity. I’m playing. Put me down! Where are we going? No! Owww!”
