A walk in the park

Overheard touron conversation in the park in Philly's historic district this afternoon:

Little girl, age 8 or so, observing sparrow hopping on ground: Oh no! That little bird can't fly! We have to help it!

Parents, siblings: Oh, sure it can fly, Sophia! It's fine. Really. It's fine.

Father: And if it can't fly, then it'll learn, or ... somebody else will eat it.

Fine time to teach your kid about Nature, Red In Tooth And Claw, pops. Maybe next you can take her to snake-feeding time at the zoo.

I hope that little girl grows up to be a vet.
