Hobson's Choice

A snippet from last evening's dinner conversation.

Frankie: "Mom, would you rather be killed by a pride of lions or an army of ants?"

Trillian: "Is there any chance of escape?" I've played this game before. I have to set the ground rules.

F: "None."

T: "Ok, then I'd have to go with the lions. It would be over faster."

F: "What if they were really old, decrepit lions with dull teeth?"

T: "It would still be faster than a bunch of ants."

F: "What if they were piranha-like ants..."

I think you're still better off with the lions - they usually suffocate their prey, and dull teeth wouldn't slow that down significantly. Even piranha-like ants would have little, tiny mouths so there'd be a lot of biting to suffer through.

What a delightfuly, um, creative son you have!

Mmmm hmmm. Creative is the term we prefer to use as well.

We've got one of those, too, although he hasn't reached the morbid-fascination-with-gruesome-death stage. I know it's coming, though.

I'd rather be challenged by an outside-the-box thinker than bored by a paint-within-the-lines kid. Catatonic vs. creative...I know which side of the fence we - and our children - are on.

Yours too. Good on ya!

Hmm priannah ants. This may be the made scientist I've been waiting for the genius who will creat the flying monkeys.

Or maybe just a child being a child. I prefer mad scientist waiting to happen.

You might want to keep an eye on Google searches made from your computer for "piranha-like ants home delivered".

Rich - actually Frankie has his own plot to take over the world. I'm a bit worried, as it appears to involve credit card fraud.

It will be interesting to see the clash of you two great Titans some day in the future.

He's younger and already working on credit card fraud. He will easily topple my ruthless regime.

I'll need pirranah ant spies.
