Perfect Nothingness

Beauty in the day: My BFF relayed this story about her 3-year-old niece:

Samara: Mommy, are you thinking what I’m thinking?
Mommy: I don’t know. What are you thinking about?
Samara: I’m not thinking about anything.

*at this point, Mommy confirms that they are, indeed, thinking of the same thing.

Beauty in the day: Boing-Boing Curls came into the clinic at her daily “scheduled” time. Her complaint was identical to the previous 7 or 8 afternoons, and I made my best attempt to get to the root of it all.
“What are you doing in class right now, Sweetie?”


“Well, I’m sure you’re doing SOMETHING. What are the kids all doing in class?”

“Nothing. We are sitting on the floor, and doing nothing.”

“Hmmm. So, I don’t think it’s NOTHING that you are doing. You must be doing SOMETHING. What are you guys doing when you’re sitting in the floor?”

“Watching the future pass by.”

Well – I asked. 😉
