Ignorance is Bliss
One of my daughter's favorite activities at night is to play hide-and-seek. Usually, the whole family plays 10 rounds.
A few nights ago, Ali again requested to play hide-and-seek. Here is how the conversation went:
Mommy: How many rounds of hide-and-seek will we play, Ali?
Ali: 16 rounds!
Mommy: 16 rounds? That's too tiring. I like 10 rounds.
Ali: I don't like 10 rounds.
Mommy (getting tired without having played a single round yet): Ay naku, it's 10 rounds or zero.
Ali: Ye-hey! Zero.
(Mommy and Lola looking baffled.)
Ali (with an excited, happy look on her face): Is zero plenty?
Kaya pala siya nag-ye-hey. Ali didn't know the concept of zero yet. Well, now she knows it means nothing. =)
