The wonderful thing

‘That’s it, that’s all there is to it?’.

‘Did I mention that the man and woman love each other very much?’.

‘Yeah—I was meaning to ask you about that, this “love each other very much” deal, how does that apply to you and mother?’.


‘…it’s complicated’.

‘I’m sorry but this doesn’t sound complicated to me at all, In fact I’m starting to wonder just how the population is kept at manageable levels’.

‘You sound awfully mature for an eight year old’.

‘Call it artistic licence, anyway how come there are so few kids about then?’

‘Um well, this “wonderful thing” that happens, it’s not something you’re supposed to do with too many people or too often’.

‘Why not if it’s so wonderful and what’s wrong exactly, with loving too many people very much?’.


‘…it’s complicated’.
