The following took place two days ago, while I was reading SMID's blog. Soccergirl looked over my shoulder at SMID's Iraq war cost-counter, and said the following:
SG: Daddy? Why do those numbers keep going up?
GF: Because the cost of the war in Iraq keeps going up.
SG: Why does the cost keep going up?
GF: Because the longer the war lasts, the more it will cost.
SG: (Silent for a moment)
SG: That's a lot of money, daddy.
GF: Yes, it is babe.
SG: Hmm. Maybe it would be a good idea not to have wars.
GF: Yes, I think you're right babe.
SG: Goodnight daddy.
GF: Goodnight, sweetpea.
Wisdom. In it's simplest form.
