Anna: Grandpa, do you have any gum?
Grandpa: No honey. I’m sorry
Anna: Grandpa, why don’t you have any gum?
Grandpa: Grown-ups don’t chew gum honey…
Anna: (Silence, brow knit, brain clearly processing. 30 seconds go by.)
Anna: My mom is a grown-up. She chews gum. (No rancor or reproach of any kind)
Grandpa: (Silence. TKO’d in first round)

Psychologists say we are at our most creative at age 4. I don’t know about that but in terms of ability to use logic, this was a first class lesson in real-time. Such a delight.
