Philosophical Question

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

Hi there, Readers.  I have a philosophical question of the chicken-and-the-egg sort for you.  Let's start with the context:

Karenna: Mommy, there's a dead bug flying around here!
Karenna (adding a few seconds later): I pulled his wings off...

My guess is that the events as relayed by daughter occurred in the following order:

  1. There was a bug flying around.
  2. Karenna pulled his wings off.
  3. He died.

My philosophical question is this... Which is worse her sequencing and understanding of cause and effect, or this apparent bug torture/killing spree she's been on lately?
