This afternoon, my six-year-old son and I went out to the airport to check on things at the hangar.  The weather was rainy and IMC.  We watched a Cherokee land after shooting an instrument approach.  I made some comment about being able to fly instruments soon, when I finish my instrument rating.

My son turned to me with this puzzled and concerned look.  "Dad, how do you turn the airplane when you are playing an instrument?"
