An Actual Conversation

Below is an exchange I had tonight with my young daughter, kinehora, who is 3 years old. And no, her name is not kinehora.

She was dissecting a particularly crucial plot point in the "Wiggles Magical Adventure" movie.

"Why did Wally take Greg's magic wand?" she asked.

"Because he thought it would help him win the magic contest," I answered.

"But why?"

"Because he felt that if he won the contest, people would like him and think he was a good magician."

"But why?"

"Because he needed external validation."

"But why?"

"Because he had low self-esteem and self-confidence."

"But why?"

"Probably because of something that happened in his childhood."

"Oh. Okay, Abba. Thanks."

Gutt yomtov, gmar chasima tova, gutt yohr.

Ah, The Wiggles are great ice-breakers for conversations. I've got memories of Fruit Salad and Big Red Cars. B'H my kids sort of grew out of that phase. Gut Yom Tov!
