If You Love Something, Set It Free. If It Comes Back, It's Yours; If It Doesn't, It Never Was? Discuss.

While we were on vacation last week, Craig fashioned small boats out of driftwood and sticks for the children. After Eugenia's floated away just before bedtime, she began to panic.

Eugenia: My boat! My boat! GET IT!

Me: But it's floating! That's what boats do.

Craig: Let it go, honey. Maybe the water will bring it back, and you'll find it on the shore in the morning.

Eugenia: But MYYYYYY BOOOOAAAT!!!!!

Me (ironically): "If you love something, set it free . . ."

Eugenia (sounding world-weary and utterly disgusted): That NEVER works!
