Tahi Logic

"I want to play Risk."
"No, you don't; you just think you do."

My older sister, Tahi, used to use this sort of logic on me and it used to crack me up. Logic does that to me, especially when misused. After all, I am of the firm belief you can find a way to reason out anything, even if you're wrong. Anyway, I find myself being confronted with this same sort of reasoning again recently, by none other than Cris, who has been known to go to great lengths to persuade me I'm hungry when I'm not; I want ice cream when I don't.

Fortunately, I am immune to such Jedi mind tricks.
