Will and I were on the way to school this morning with a warm chocolate chip pie for his Algebra class nestled between us in honor of Pi Day. I said, "Maybe we should have quiche for dinner. It's a pie."
"No. I really don't like quiche."
"Will," I said, "don't you wish you liked more foods. Wouldn't life be so much easier if you did?".
"No, imagine how hard it would be for me at a restaurant if I liked everything on the menu?".
Hmmm...I really never thought of it that way. Maybe if I disliked more things my life would be easier! Living in the black and white. Perhaps that's the attraction of fundamentalism. It removes the need to think.
So, on that note, Happy Pi Day!
