just a thought

Today, Jacob (3) said he wants a pet tiger.  And he seemed serious.  So I thought to myself, “why not?”  And then I thought, “well…, it might eat us.”  Then I thought, “but we only live once.  Why are we so timid to do things that are slightly risky?”  Then I thought, “Oh yea…, but the tiger would definitely eat us.” 

Dang.  This is too bad.  Wouldn’t it be awesome to buy your little boy a real tiger?  That would be so exciting. 


  1. Siegfried and Roy tried this if I recall correctly.

    You do make a good point — why are we ever afraid to try something new? After all, we know where we’re going when we die, right?
