ponderings

"When will I be 4 and a half?" wondered Wee Tiny.

"Hmmm....maybe in about 10 years?" reasoned Wee Small.

As Wee Small is very wise and always right, the answer must be correct. Therefore the question must need to be interpreted correctly to fit the answer. 4 and a half what?

Yes, it always does depend on your starting point. These calculations have to be done with care, as the result will be different as the conditions change.
Wee Small is doing well to understand this so early in her life.

I can see that in my role as chronicler of the wisdom of the little ones I have failed to understand the deeper meanings behind my observations.

4 and a half what, and starting points indeed! That is the essence that I had failed to understand.
