QOTD (2010-04-05)

Today, a piece of overheard dialogue from the McCosh/Dickinson/Chapel quad:

Mother to two small children: “We’re going to spend just a little time in the philosophy department, and then we can go get ice cream.”
Small child: “Philosophy, then ice cream!”
Mother: “That’s right, philosophy first, then ice cream.”

I obviously identified very strongly with the child—even though everyone knows philosophy always comes before ice cream.
