The magical car door

We were pulling into a parking spot when the back door of a car swung open. The owners were getting closed to it and had opened it with their remote.

Our 3 year old exclaimed – “Look, it’s opening magically.”

“Ah, that’s not magical” – I explained. “It’s just the remote working.”

He explained that he knew that. We could do it in our car too after all. But, that didn’t change the fact that it was magical in his mind.

It took me a second to gain some perspective.

A button was pressed somewhere and a door just opened.


Of course it is magical.
