Me: Laura, stop eating the salt off those pretzels and then putting them back in the bowl.
Laure: But Mommy, the salt is so tasty. I want to eat them this way. First I eat the salt, then I eat the rest of the pretzel.
Me: But if you just ate it all at once, you'd have the salt ON the pretzel and it would taste fine. When you eat the salt first, you're left with a bland pretzel that doesn't taste very good.
Laura: But I don't want to eat it that way. The salt is yummy.
Me: But that doesn't make any sense.
Laura: Mommy, I don't know how I got this way. It just happened.
