Child Philosophers

While my siblings and I nerdily read in the back seat of the car, as Daddy drove us out for lunch, my 10 year old brother surprised me with this:

"Imagine all the insects in the world not having names before humans gave them names..."

LOL! He didn't even want an answer, he was just stating it. Reminds me of the philosophy of language I was learning about only last semester. I love clever kids!


Do you know people who have staple articles of clothing? I can't think of anyone I know personally, but I find it really interesting...Miranda Priestly (the boss from The Devil Wears Prada-Lauren Weisberger) always wears a white Hermes scarf somewhere in her outfit. Also, Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl...he wears this quirky scarf all the time...I think it's cute!
