Soficism #3

(on seeing a sweet little white-haired old lady working in her immaculate yard...)

"Old people like to have nice yards. (silence for a few beats...) I think... I think it's because they want people to look at their yards and think they're young. Old people have white hair and wiggly skin and they think if they have a really beautiful yard with flowers and everything, people will look at the pretty yard and think "Oh, some young pretty person must live in that house!"

Wow! What a mind - isn't it amazing how kids think? Sometimes I wish I knew more of what was going through Noah's mind...but then I realize that he won't really be a baby much longer and I get sad. These kids just turn our lives upside down!
