sunday's "so they said"

On Friday we were having our last art class where the kids were drawing some dragons.
One of my girls was not happy with her artwork and said it was "ugly".
A neighbor of hers piped in by saying:

"There is no such thing as ugly art.  All art is beautiful.  All art is unique.  And since all art is unique, I guess no piece is actually unique or special.  Hmm."

Now you have to know, this kid has quite the personality, and also has a habit of spitting out some pretty philosophical comments without even knowing it.  This was one of these times.  I was pretty lucky to be sitting at the back table to overhear this conversation.  The group and I had a pretty good laugh over all the seriousness that was occurring during art prep.
