Do you know what the problem is?

So today after running some errands (and me actually running 4.5 miles) we were on our way home. The exit ramp we normally take from the freeway was backed up big time, so I made the choice to go on an exit and come into town from a different direction.

As we pass under the overpass, L announces: "Well yep! that is this the problem - there are just too many cars!"

Actually I am sure that was part of it, more than likely someone did something stupid - but it was the way she said it, with such authority and conviction.

there is a commercial over here in which a little girl tells her dad how cheap petrol must be to make it worth all the driving he's doing to get the lowest price. she calls it the annabelle principle. it's a witty commercial, because that frankness in kids is spot on. we know they're right, but don't listen.

Kids know and see all. We adults can seldom see the forest for the trees.
