On the value of political systems.

When I grow up, I am going to be king.

Really? We live in a constitutional monarchy – so the royal person is mainly a figurehead. The Queen mostly signs papers and makes speeches.

Oh. That’s not very much.

You could be Prime Minister – we have one of those in Canada, too, and he or she gets to do lots of stuff. It’s a pretty big job.

No, I want to be king instead – I could make Terracotta Warriors instead of soldiers.

And I want a thinking cap more than I want a crown.

[I do a small jig in my mind.]
