People Have Troubles

Earlier this week Trinhity was playing near a fancy column in the foyer of a restaurant. She had climbed up on the marble platform and was pretending that the bulbous base was her crystal ball.

She told me to wait at the bottom of the wheelchair ramp while she went to check her crystal ball. I obliged. She ran down the incline a minute or so later wearing a terribly grave look.

"Daddy," she said, "people have troubles. First some people had troubles, but now the whole world has troubles! Lots of troubles! Big troubles! What are we going to do?"

Intuitive little bugger, that one. Boy, if that ain't the question, eh?

What, indeed, are we going to do?
