What Would Happen...?

I continue to marvel at the way Matthew's little mind works. He's very into "What would happen if…" questions these days. To wit, tonight as we drove home from a special Christmasy outing, Esme wanted me to sing, so I had been singing to the kids for 10 minutes or so. Then suddenly…

Matthew: What would happen if we didn't have any lightbulbs?

(Dave and I laugh)

Dave: Random thoughts from Matthew! (Teasing) "What would happen of we didn't have any ears?"

Matthew: (so excited he can't get the words out) If… if… if we didn't have… if we didn't have any ears, you could see in our heads!

Not at all the obvious answer that came to my mind, but true--quite true!
