We all die

January 3, 2008

Pillow talk one night

son: all humans die don’t they?

his mom: yes, humans are one of animal species and some animals live longer some shorter, you know that right?

son: who’ll be driving us around when you two are too old?

his mom: you’ll be driving us around of course, won’t you?

son: what if I got old as well?

his mom: your son will be driving you around….too soon to worry about that, let’s go to bed.

‘Old my God’, my son is not yet 6.     Should I be teaching him philosophy like Sophie’s father did?
