Traitor

“Our Klara is a traitor to the family philosophy,” I tell N.

“Oh God,” he says, “does she like Pushkin?”

“No, it’s not quite as bad. She loves the swimming pool.”

We are hoping that the preference for the pool over the sea is a temporary stage.

  1. “Klara is a traitor to the family philosophy”

    Let the show trials begin!

    More seriously, it’s of course perfectly natural given her age and very small size. The more that she enjoys swimming as she grows up the more likely she is to eventually prefer the living push pull of the currents and the plethora of life (and feel of salt water) in the sea.
