Lola's existential crisis

Lately we've rolled up our rugs and moved our furniture aside, so that first grader Lola can ride "Scooty", her pink scooter, around the downstairs over and over again. Today, however, Lola is in a foul mood, and whenever her circuit takes her past me, she issues a depressed statement on life worthy of Camus.

"Life is overrated," Lola says darkly as she goes past on the bright pink, flowered scooter.

On her next pass, she says, glowering, "Life is a big circle filled with nothing."

Still grieving over the loss of the Cupy family I imagine.
