The property laws of a toddler

LAKE OCONEE — Have you seen the Property Laws of a Toddler:

1. If I like it, it's mine.

2. If it's in my hand, it's mine.

3. If I can take it from you, it's mine.

4. If I had it a little while ago, it's mine.

5. If it's mine, it must never appear to be yours in any way.

6. If I'm doing or building something, all the pieces are mine.

7. If it looks just like mine, it's mine.

8. If I saw it first, it's mine.

9. If you are playing with something and you put it down, it automatically becomes mine.

10. If it's broken, it's yours.

Isn't it sad that some people don't grow up? Don't be one of them. Wishing you much love and much light.

The Rev. David W. Key can be reached at (404) 727-6350 or dkey@emory.edu.
