Out of the mouths of babes and fools . . .
I am going to summarise, write and frame the OP's remarks. So true for life in general, I think.
Totally agree. He sounds like the son of friend of mine. Said son is high functioning autistic and when asked why he chose to go to the library at morning break instead of going out, he said,"Why would I want to go outside when all the books are in the library?". The same child, on World Book Day, had a stand up row with his teacher, and then his mother, because the book character he wanted to go to school dressed as was Jesus Christ. He argued that JC was a book character and because he doesn't believe in "any of that religious stuff" (he's far too intelligent to be taken in by it), then it was a work of fiction. Oh I love that lad!
