Promises

June 15, 2021
'Today we're learning about promises again,' said the small girl, 'and I don't understand it.'
'Why not?' asked the first little owl.
'All the big ones and small ones and ones you don't keep...' said the small girl. 'It doesn't make sense.'
'Why not?' asked the second little owl.
'Well if you break a promise, it's not a promise, so you can't really call it a promise. Isn't that right?' said the small girl.
(Pause)
'True,' said the dishevelled little owl.
