Mamma, I am mad!!!!

“Mamma, I’m mad”, announced my three-year old.

Coming from him, I knew it could not be a simple statement of fact, or intent– there had to be a catch somewhere. But before I could probe further, he proceeded to explain what he had in mind.

“I’m mad. Now, can I have some salt?”

Flashback! All those dozens of times when he came to me demanding that I give him a spoonful of salt, and I responded, “Are you mad or what? Does anyone eat salt?”

After that bit of irrefutable logic, how could I resist giving him what he wanted?
