You Cant Argue With This LogicThis morning I was out making my weekly errand runs to my circle of stores; the grocery store, the discount membership club, gas station, etc. One of these stops was at Target(Targe't if your french) to check on their ipod prices. While browsing I happened to notice a young(er) couple cart loaded, children in tow. One, the younger, was meandering along behind in the wake of the cart while the older, perhaps all of six, rode. Dad looked thrilled and trudged along silenty as mom was having a verbal duel with her oldest offspring most of which I dd not catch.
What I did hear, the end of an exchange made me giggle inside because at this age you cant fight them. Evidently the child, one or both were feeling hungry and had begun to prod Mom for something to eat.
"........because thats food money, thats why" Mom replied thinking this would suffice.
"But Chik-fil-a is fooood." The said the oldest, half question, half statement.
Short, concise, and arrow straight, delivered soberly by a child who will surely make a fine politician one day, or at least a trial lawyer. Oh how life used to be sweet when the biggest problem you had was wrestling with the blunt logic of a child. One who is yet to be corrupted by a world of illusion and gimmicks. A simple mind with simple solutions before a grown up world makes things much more complicated. Out of the mouth of babes.
