no issues, none whatsoever

This is what Fergus asked me last night, as we were having a intimate, cozy moment, me toweling him off after his warm bath:

FERGUS: Mommy. If I cut Maddie’s feet off wif a knife. Would she not be able to walk anymore?

MOMMY manages to under-react.

MOMMY: Hmm, I don’t know, but I don’t think that’s a nice thing to say.

FERGUS: I not saying I DO it. I just saying IF I did it.

Oh, OK. In THAT case, there’s no problem here at all.

Well, Maddie is pretty new at this walking thing. Maybe her achievement has renewed Fergus’s interest in the mechanics of perambulation and the impact of various disabilities on same? (cf the scholarly disputation “What if someone only had one leg,” from earlier this year.)

The real question is, is it terrible that I found it really funny, as well. Upon further examination I am wondering if I should call a shrink.
