Darn That Backwards Logic

posted by Momo Fali on February 18, 2008

My son and I got into a conversation about whether or not he had ever eaten lobster. He said that he’s never had it, when I know in fact, that he has. Most recently, he ate some on New Year’s Eve.

During this disagreement, his speech therapist would’ve shuddered to hear him say, “I not had lobster on New Year’s Eve.”

I corrected him and said, “You shouldn’t say, you not had lobster. You should say…you DID NOT have lobster on New Year’s Eve.”

He replied, “See? You said I didn’t have it, so I was right.”

    Really? You live here? I didn’t know that. We try and get out downtown as much as possible. I love exploring what it has to offer.

    Don’t even try, mom. Walk away from the child with your sanity intact and your brains safely contained within your skull cavity.

    reminds me of the old looney toons trick of
    did not,
    did so,
    did not,
    did so,
    did not,
    did so,
    DID SO,
    did not! AH HA!
