Life lessons by Matei

Matei, on Marriage

"I have been thinking that I should get married to Helena when I grow up."
"Well, you can't do that because she is your sister."
"But I know her very well, so I would know exactly what to expect from her as a person."
"That's true, but you aren't allowed to marry your family Matei."
"That sounds very incovenient. If you don't marry your family, then how do you know that you are going to marry a good person?"

Matei, on Suffering

Matei, one of life's profound and natural hypochondriacs saw an old scratch on his knee and immediately sought Z and my opinions on the gravity of the situation.
"What is this?"
"It's just a scratch."
"I think Helena did it with one of her claws."
"No, you got this weeks ago, it's scabbed. It's nothing, it doesn't hurt." He thought about this, then with a grave, world-weary look said:
"I believe you are wrong. I think that only when you are dead then you feel no pain from your injuries.

Hmmm, could you ask Matei how long the pain lasts? is he stil suffering from minor injuries he suffered in toddlerhood, for example?

I wish I could have an entire class of Matei's, even if their intelligence and thinking foiled me :).
