Two things Miles said today


"Why do you say 'they' in England when you mean only one person?"

He might not have been accurate about the England part, but he was very accurate here in identifying how everybody says "they" when they refer to singular subjects (as in this sentence!).


"Little miracles are happening everywhere right now, because it's so beautiful and nice."

Said as we left his swimming lesson and walked out into the late afternoon sunshine, temperature in the low twenties (C; ca. 70 F).

What a delightful pair of observations -- one so linguistic & grammatical; the other one so metaphysical & lyrical. That kid has wonderful BREADTH, for sure!
