Wisdom From a Ten-year-old

A discussion with my little cousin after I responded to "what are you doing" with "nothing"
  1. Cousin: What does "nothing" mean?
  2. Cousin: Why do people say they're doing nothing? They're always doing something.

  4. Me: That's smart.
  5. Cousin: My friend taught me that. But she gets kind of irritating
  6. Cousin: I say "nothing" a lot. Or "nothing much"...
