Additive properties of goodness

Bed time. Diffused yellow glow owns the scene. An 8 year old beautiful kid (He disagrees to the sentiment as being girlish) with a mouthful of talk that is about to find expression.

"Dad, is water healthy?"

"Yes? I said."

"Is lemon tea healthy?"


"I am going to drink water and I am going to drink lemon tea!!"

"Why do you want to do that??"

"They are both healthy and I want to be twice healthier"

The arrangement appears an intentional exercise where the individual potability is not sufficient but the additive properties of goodness are his intention.
