Three, no, two reasons why not to die...

A few years ago, I was driving to Vermont for the weekend. My older daughter and her friend were in the car, and so was my younger daughter. It was the middle of winter and my younger daughter, who was about six at the time, was looking forward to swimming in the indoor pool at the hotel. Though it was quite cold outside, the sun was strong and it was hot in the car. She was sitting directly in the sun in the back seat of the car squirming in discomfort. She said to us, "I can think of three reasons why I don't want to die today. One, I really want to go swimming today. Two, I don't want to get any closer to that sun than I have to, and three... wait, there are two reasons, not three."
