I love eavesdropping on my kids, this is what I heard today while they were eating a snack...
"If you're half dog and half human, then when you eat chocolate, the chocolate goes to the human side."
Oh to be a kid again! I imagine those who write sci fi live in this kind of world more often, more than me anyway. You do see here how her schema of chocolate being dangerous for dogs coming into play! When probed a bit my daughter smirked about the comment and admitted she was eating like a dog and that made her think of it. Too funny. I loved doing that as a kid. When do we stop putting bowls on the floor to act like a cat or a dog? When did play become work?
Bottom line: It gives me perspective! Perspective to cherrish each moment and play more!
