Baby languages...

I came across this some time ago and it stuck in my memory so I dug it out again...

[Found at Tan Lucy Pez...]

"I know I'm bored because my matchstick model of the Eiffel Tower is approaching life size. So I started thinking about life. There are not many universal truths in life, but I think that one is no matter how hard you try, you can't run away from your knees. Another is if you rummage in an overgrown garden long enough you will always turn up an old ball. Why is that? And have you noticed? No matter what part of the world they're from, all babies cry in English."

I like that - except that I think babies cry in a universal language - no matter what your native language, all babies cry in it. :)

And I've dug up old balls in gardens a number of times (and many other interesting objects, as well).
