Kindergarten Paradox Thinking...

It’s been a while since I wrote something about (pondered over) paradox thinking! Here’s a cute something that reflects paradox thinking at the kindergarten level! :)

Calvin aims a snow ball at Susie and congratulates himself on having done an admirable job of hitting his target. Susie is visibly annoyed and starts gathering so much snow that it begins to look too large a snow ball for her to handle. Calvin guffaws and ridicules Susie for her apparent lack of intelligence and points out to her that she’d never be able to pick it up, leave alone throwing it at him. Even as he laughs his head off, Susie advances towards him with a determined look on her face and simply picks him up and takes him to the place where she had gathered the snow and ‘drives’ him face down into it. Ha ha! Talk of some cool paradox thinking!! :D
