I’m listening to my kid play some kind of “which one do you prefer” game with two other girls, all under 10, they’re reading questions from somewhere. Here’s how it’s going:

“Would you rather be a geek or a nerd?”
“Huh. I don’t know what the difference is.”
“Yeah, me either. Do you know?”
“Not really.”
“Huh. I don’t know. Next.”

“Do you prefer Android or IOS?”
“I don’t know what those things are.”
“Me either.”
“Android. Or IOS.”
“Wait, you have to pick one.”
“Android. Wait, IOS.”
“But what is it?”
“An android’s a robot.”
“Oh, right. Android.”

“Do you think appearances are more important in a relationship, or a sense of humor?”
“I don’t know.”
“I’m not sure.”
“Appearances. Wait, sense of humor. Wait – relationship?”

“In an election, do you listen to facts or judge by presentation?”
“Presentation?”
“Election?”
“Yeah, like president.”
“Oh. Facts.”
“Yeah, facts.”
“What’s presentation?”
“Like a project. You do the project then you have a presentation.”
“Like a diorama?”
“Well, maybe.”
“Then presentation. Wait, facts.”

“Would you rather have a world with religion or without religion?”
“Religion?”
“Like church.”
“Which one?”
“It doesn’t say.”
“Huh. How are you supposed to say then?”
“I don’t know, just answer!”
“I guess I don’t care. They should say which one.”
“Which ones are there?”
“You could probably pick which one.”
“I don’t want to pick which one. It should be in the question.”
