Voting With A Five-Year-Old
"Daddy, who is the leader of America right this minute?"
I reply, "President Bush."
"And we're voting for one of the two other guys because he's tired of being the leader?"
"Well, actually..." And I give him my best 60-second answer about things like term limits and such. I talk about how no one can be president forever and that we take turns, kind of like how he and his sister must take turns doing things. I finish and look forward to answering any follow-up questions he might have.
"If you get a dead ant and put chocolate on it, it will taste like chocolate."
And the rest of our conversation was a lot more fun.
