Overheard at 14th birthday party…
“What if the most beautiful person in the world asked you to marry them?”
My Oldest, age 13: “Do I love them?”
Girl: “Doesn’t matter. They are the most person in the world. How would you say no to that?”
Oldest: “You open your mouth and say… No.”
Funny how places and things can teleport you.
Here I am at my son’s skating party, at a skating rink I’ve never seen before in my life.
But inside I’m the fat kid too poor to buy skates who never learned to skate and I hate all the cool kids for having fun.
I may have issues.
I got to run another kid LARP today at the 8th birthday party of the daughter of our best friends. Everyone involved had a pretty good time. The kids are always a hoot and I’m learning that few things make me happier than showing kids that you don’t have to stop playing pretend when you grow up.
