Thought Process of a 3-Year Old

I lit a nice cranberry and spice candle and accidently dropped the lighter when I was done.  My 3-year old was standing next to me and swiftly picked up the lighter.  He then, of course, attempted to light the lighter.

“Don’t do that,” I said calmly, holding my hand out for the lighter.

“It will make a fire?” he asked, handing it back.

“Yes.”

“It will burn my finger?”  he asked.

“Yes.”

A brief pause.

“I like my fingers.”
