  • Sarah, my four year old niece, tells her mommy, 'I love you'

    Her mommy says, 'I love you too'

    Not to be outdone, Sarah holds out three fingers and says, 'I love you three!"

    To which her mommy replies, 'I love you infinitely'

    Sarah is a little perplexed.

    She pauses.

    And then a slow smile spreads across her face.

    "I love you in China. And in Russia !!!!!" she exclaims smugly.

    (Sarah is six years old now, going on twelve)
