Little Johnny Stories IV
Little Johnny, even at two years of age, can plot out a course of action to his maximum advantage just like you and I can. That is true, as any parent can attest. Yet he can sometimes make a startling mistake [just like you and I can]. For example, when he hasn't had his nap and he's a little crabby, he just might shoot himself in the foot. Like, daddy lovingly says to him, "Johnny, how would you like to" - and before daddy can finish the part about going to the ice cream store Johnny blurts out "NO!"
Just like you and I can.
Conclusion: a crabby little kid can be as foolish as a crabby adult.
