Opposites?

Posted on February 3, 2011. Filed under: Elemental Memories, The Parenting Thing |

Every parent has those incredible moments when your child totally amazes you.  I had that moment with ChickenFried the other night. 

“Mom, does everything have an opposite?” he inquired.

Wow – that’s a really good question.   I mean really good.  And where did it come from?  What was he thinking about? 

Of course my mind immediately went to the BIG opposite God/Devil …. Good/Evil.  (Have you ever noticed how similar those word pairs are?)  I mustered, “That’s a really good question.  I don’t everything has an opposite.  Can you think of something that doesn’t?  Does a car have an opposite?”  I’m sure that was such a disappointing respose to him.
