The evil midgets speak

Over two nights, it just suddenly became spring. The birds are singing, the sun is shining, snow is melting, and yes... it's plus-degrees, regardless if that just means .5-.8 C.

Speaking of spring (and flowers growing, and birds laying eggs and all that), the entertainment magazine Nollelva--equivalent of Inquirer Super-- had come up with a wedding-themed issue in which they asked early gradeschoolers what they thought about marriage. Children are strange creatures...

What's the point in getting married?
- One kan keep the girl and dosn't need to bring her back to her parents (Erik, 6 years)

Is it better to stay single or be married?
- I get a headache when I think of such questions. I'm just a kid. I don't need such complications! (Adam, 7 years)

What's the right age to get married?
- When I'm done with preschool, I'll look for a wife. (Martin, 5 years)

How can you tell if two people are married?
- You have to guess, but one clue is when they're shouting at the same kid. (Kicki, 8 years)

What should you to for your marriage to work?
- Say that she's beautiful, even if she looks like a 10-wheeler truck. (Rick, 10 years)
