A snippet from the tail end of our conversation about life and death tonight, of course taking place at bedtime when it’s most advantageous to explore the Big Questions:
Maxwell: I’m really glad to be a human. I mean, if I were a cheetah or a parrot or something…well, I’d really be missing out on a lot.
Me: Like what?
Maxwell: For instance–really good food; and video games; technology; physics; lattice multiplication; superheroes…
He went on to list the disadvantages as well, which weren’t pain or dying but disappointments such as the inability to fly. The apple, it does not fall far from the geek tree.
P.S. Back with a big, fat entry over the big, fat weekend…can’t wait to dish the dirt/spill the beans/let the cat out of the bag! Miss this, and YOU ALL.
