Unclear on the Concept

K: This ice cream is really good, but it's giving me a headache.

Me: Isn't it interesting how sometimes the things that bring us pleasure give us pain as well?

K: Yeah, but it's okay, I have some aspirin.

*sigh*

"what's wrong with mitigating the pain and keeping the pleasure?"

Nothing! I was making a philosophical statement about the nature of pain and pleasure, and I don't think she got it. Sometimes, it's hard to tell the difference between the two.

Not that I enjoy headaches, mind you... :)
