Philosophy & Wisdom

Overheard this evening.
  1. Surest way to get a rise out of our 6-yr-old is to say he has a girlfriend. So of course the siblings claim it constantly. His frustrated effort to refute the charge this evening was (bellowed at the top of his lungs), "If I was a little girl, my true love would be ME!" Not sure it works as a retort, but he's more right than he knows. 
  2. Somehow we got on the topic of the ratings system, the limits of its effectiveness and how we'd alter it. 9-yr-old Weed chimed in. "I'd rate An Inconvenient Truth "R" for Gore." Heh.
