The Bliss Is Short-Lived


A conversation between Caroline and myself while we were sitting in the movie theater last night, waiting for Ice Age 3 to begin:



"Do you know what I'd do if I were the ruler of the world?"


"I'd make sure all the homeless people got some food that very instant. All the starving children and their moms and dads would get food."


"Yeah, lots of food for anyone who needs it. That way moms wouldn't have to watch their babies be hungry."

"That's a really good daydream, Honey. I wish you ruled the world."

"Yeah. Also, kids would be able to drive."

"Kids? Like, how old?"

"Any age they want!"

"Um...are you sure that's a good idea?"

"Yes! I know I can drive! Kids can drive!"

(blank stare)

"What? I'm making starving people happy too!"

"Until they are hit by cars."
