This is what Maya asked us today, as she was snacking on some cheese: "Why are we, humans/people (люди) here on Earth?" To cover my shock, I first tried finding out why she was asking. She just said that it occurred to her, that's all. Now I guess this was one of those instances where it helps to be religious. "God made us in his image and put us here". There, all done. I guess she might then ask, "Who is God?" but then you give some standard answer that goes with your particular religion and that's been drilled into you since childhood. Instead, we ended up talking incoherently about apes learning to use tools and domesticating animals many, many thousands of years ago. Yikes.

Я сижу в кафе, пытаюсь работать. Недалеко сидит семья с тремя детьми (русско-говорящие, кстати, но это неважно). Младшая начинает громко визжать. Когда у меня не было детей, в такой ситуации у меня возникало раздражение на родителей - ах, не умеют своих детей воспитывать. Теперь лишь чувство удовлетворения - не только мои такие.

Пока я это печатала, средний стал громко ныть и просить дессерт - тут мне совсем весело стало.
