I’m Sure

I got a package from Amazon the other day. I told my six-year-old daughter it was for me and I wasn’t going to share it. She didn’t seem to mind.

Aren’t you curious about what it is?” I asked.

I’m sure I won’t like it, as soon as I see it,” she said.

Okay, then. I guess Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty is all mine.

No, wait.

Is it a toy?” she asked, with growing interest.

But Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty isn’t a toy. It’s thoughtful, serious business.

Still, she liked it. And of course didn’t like, or maybe just ignored my heavy-handed attempt to moralize about not knowing if you’ll like something until you try it.
