conversations: Josiah

So I was having a conversation with my two year-old brother Josiah today and I happened to ask him how old he is.

"Two. EIGHT!" he told me.

"Two?" I asked.

"NO. EIGHT."

"You're eight?"

"Yes," he said confidently. "Eight."

When pressed further about birthdays and when he actually turned eight, he changed the subject.

Later, while discussing the merits of a lighter and how he couldn't turn one on, he told me he wanted the fire.

"What do you need the fire for?" I asked him. "What are you going to set on fire?"

He thought about this. Then, apparently pleased with himself, he said, "The table!"

Hence the phrase, as appears on everything, 'keep out of reach of children'.

Good initiative though. I'd assume the table is wooden, and so would make a nice fire :).

who i am!

Tiph used to be this weird hippie chick who sewed things and drank tea and rode bikes and wrote silly things. Then, college came along, and now she's this weird hippie chick with math in her brain and notebooks full of indefinite integrals. And hardly any time to write. This is her space. Thankfully, space is a vacuum and any complaints you may have cannot be heard.
