There are going to be a whole bunch of posts in rapid succession.
I have two weeks to catch up on you know.
William: “Kaleb, you should shave your head too, so I can see what you look like bald.”
Kaleb(quoting from Facing the Giants): “No way! A black man goes bald, he still looks good.”
William(yelling in exasperation): “I AM NOT BLACK I AM BROWN! THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE! What do you know about black anyway?”
I’ve been having some “girl” conversations with Grace. Nothing too deep, just covering the basics. One night we had a conversation about the basic facts of a woman’s reproductive system. She seemed uninterested. The next night we have the following conversation:
Grace: “So mama, tell me again. You lay an egg and it doesn’t get fertilized.”
Me:(stifling laughter, picturing one of the hens laying an egg) “Yes, that’s right.”
Grace: “Well, how does it get fertilized?”
Me: “Richard, you want to take this one?”
Richard(quickly attempting to exit the scene): “Nope, you’re on your own with this one. You started it, you finish it.”
Grace: “I mean, what do you have to do? Eat dirt or something?”
