This is a typical conversation with my youngest son. These conversations are entertaining and governed by his own reasoning. He follows his own rules!
“Where did your pants go?” I asked the small form now clad in a long sleeve shirt, socks and underwear.
“It’s hot in here,” he responds as an explanation.
“Oh,” I say and pause as he thrusts his hand towards me. “Why are you handing me your sweater?”
“Contrariwise,” continued Tweedledee, “if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic.”
