He had also learned that the man had to treat all his wives equally well.
Poor him, he will have to cook for four wives! Samuel exclaimed.I just love this comment.
I love it because it is completely unexpected for most people.
It is not surprising for those who know my family though. My husband is the one cooking.
If I need to cook I will take the family to a restaurant / order take away / reluctantly heat something up in the microwave oven.
So for Samuel this is a very logical assumption to make.
It is easy to tilt our heads and smile at this cute comment from a child who bases his view of the world on his own situation.
But wait a second.
He is not the only one.
We all see the world based on our own experiences. This is normal. Normal and not bad at all. As long as we realize that our view is not the only one.
Or, as I heard Dr. Phil phrase it:
There is no reality. Only perceptions.
