i understand.

[nephew #1 is having a tough time waking up from his nap and it's making him super whiny and tearful.]

nephews' mama: "i know you're tired."
nephew #1: [whimpering, starting to cry]
nephews' mama: "why don't you get elmo chair?"
nephew #1: [getting louder]
nephews' mama: "do you need some cheese?"
nephew #1: [stops crying] "yes."

Cheese is a wondrous food, for sure.

I'll bet there have been many times in my life where a smidgen of cheese would've really turned the situation around.

I guess hindsight is 20/20.

oh hindsight...the good thing, though, is that you have the whole rest of your life ahead of you! think of all the times when future you can benefit from remembering that cheese can really fix everything sometimes!
