On Taxes.

Laurel: “Mom, why don’t we just get rid of taxes?”

Me: “Because if we didn’t pay taxes, we wouldn’t have services like ambulances, libraries, roads, fire departments, public schools…”

Laurel: “Oh, yeah. Good point.”

Ethan: “And we wouldn’t have lines on the roads, either!”

Me: “Well, true.”

Ethan: “Wouldn’t it be cool if we didn’t have to pay anything AND we still got to have all those things?”

Me: “Yeah. Yeah, it’d be cool. Good luck with that.”
