Speak up, sonny boy, my hearing aid's not working
I kidsat tonight for my usual charge, the Kid (who is now six years old. SIX!!), and his best friend, who is four. Around 8:30 I got the boys settled down on the futon on either side of me and let them take turns choosing from a big pile of storybooks. At one point, the Friend piped up, "How old are you?"
VBG: I'm 27.
Friend: By the time I'm your age, you'll be dead!
VBG: I hope not. I'll be 50, the same age as the Kid's dad.
Friend: When I'm your age, you'll be old!
Knock it off, kid, or I'll bop you with my cane.
