Stilgherrian’s links for 22 October 2009 through 27 October 2009, published after far too long a break. I really, really do need to work out a better way of doing this…

Yesterday, while walking the Sydney Harbour Bridge and afterwards (photos to come), we heard a couple of magnificent comments from children.

From a girl about 10 years old, objecting to being told what to do by her father: “If you love me, you’ll stop being arrogant.” (I’m impressed that she knew “arrogant” at her age!)

And two girls, also about 10yo, chanting together:

We don’t do the dishes
Because we’re so delicious!

That’s a damn fine excuse for not doing the housework if ever I heard one. And they were as cute as buttons. I’d even have taken a quick photo except that in the 21st Century any attention given to someone else’s children brands you a paedophile. Bloody paranoia.
