on beauty

mithi, her dad and me.

Conversation veers to beauty blah.....
hubby: so mithi, what is beauty?
mithi: papa, beauty is being good. if you are good, you will be beautiful, and if you are bad, you will be ugly.

hubby and me look at each other. amazed.
next moment my cynical mind wonders where she heard it.

me: so, is it important to be "beautiful" (the way she understands it)?
mithi: no. but, (looking at her dad apprasingly)...papa, you must be slim and tim.
both of us: what? tim?
mithi: yes, t.i.m. you must be healthy. so, when will you start going to the gym, huh?
