Earthquake Alert

After our phones alerted us to this earthquake (elsewhere, and we didn’t feel it at all), we had a discussion about earthquakes, which led to yet another discussion about death.

Do people die in this country? -Theo

Yes, people die in this country. People die in all countries. -Me

Will I die someday? -Theo

Yes, someday. Probably not for a long time. -Me

I don’t want to die. -Theo

I hear that you don’t want to die. Most people don’t want to die. -Me

I don’t want to die. -Theo

(Very brief pause)

Can we have lunch now? -Theo


(Theo, post-discussion, counting mochi to determine if we have the correct number for our lunch-time soup.)
