Re: Welcome to The Pub At the End of the Universe.
I had a brief chat with my very good friend who is nearly four yesterday afternoon. I was talking to his Mum, but he wanted to say hello, so she put him on.
He had a lot to tell me, and he is extremely clever and Other, so it's always interesting to hear. He got on to the subject of how it has been raining heavily here, and when he described it I sensed that he was taking the tone of 'isn't rain a nuisance, can't go to the park, bloody rain, etc.,' (not his exact words), but wasn't altogether sure about this tone he was clearly borrowing. So I said to him, "I love rain. It's good to go out and get soaking wet and splash puddles." He warmed to this point of view, but something still wasn't quite right with this picture. After a thoughtful pause, I told him that I also love it when the sun comes out, and that I love both - they're just different.
His response was a huge, knowing, "Yeeees!" that had an unusual ring to it. I felt I'd been patted on the head by a tiny, very wise Taoist.
