A Double Standard


Caleb and I drove to The Apple Farm today. In the back seat he was studying his suction cup gun, and we were having a chatty conversation.

After a pause, I hear "COOL!" "What is it Caleb?" "I bet I could shoot an ant with my suction cup gun!"

Just as I began to say we should be kind to all living things, a still small voice reminded me "Emily, you're the one that puts poison out all over the house hoping to wipe out entire colonies."

Needless to say, Caleb didn't get the lecture I had planned.
