Topics of Conversation

I was walking behind some elementary aged kids the other day and they have some of the funnest conversations. There is no pretense to a child's topics of choice and everyone involved in the circle usually ends up agreeing or fascinated. And most of their conversations don't end up in heated debates in who is right or wrong.

The topic of this group was burping. It started when one kid said "I burp best when I drink soda. Not so much when I drink juice".

Another kid piped in "that's because burps are made from bubbles. Soda has bubbles, juice doesn't".

Another said, "I wonder if you shake the juice box hard enough if there will be bubbles".

And yet another said "Let's try it someday".

Simple conversation. What happens when you grow up? Do you lose that simple view of life? Or do you just end up learning the truth behind the burps?

  • Later they'll learn beer has lots of bubbles.

  • Man, I wish I could burp.

  • You're told burping is rude. ;)

  • I think we just grow up and get a little more jaded and cynical. It would be nice to view the world from a child's eye again.
