A Conversation with Noah

Here's a conversation I had with my son, Noah (age 5), today while we grabbed a bite to eat and Momma shopped for clothes. I submit to you, compelling evidence that xenophobia is ingrained, but love of humanity is too:

N: "I think you and Momma are the best mom and dad in the whole world."

B: "You're probably right. I don't know, though. I think my mom and dad, your grandma and grandpa, are the best. They're pretty great, huh?"

N: "Yeah. I think everyone in the world is the best."

B: "You like everyone in the whole world?"

N: "Yeah. But the people from other planets aren't so good."

B: "I agree. Can't be trusted."

N: "Yeah."
