Conversation in the Dugout

Alvin Fernald (aged twelve) talking with his thirteen-year-old baseball buddy last week:

Buddy: Dude, how old is your Mom?

Alvin: She's fifty-one.

Buddy: Dude!

Alvin: She had me when she was thirty-nine.

Buddy: Dude! My Mom's not thirty-nine yet!!

Sigh. Some days I feel older than others.

Too funny. My mom had me when she was 42 and my dad was 53. Now that I'm 30, and I tell folks that my dad is 83, they tell me their grandparents are!

I discovered your blog today by clicking on one of my favorite movies in my profile (Random Harvest). You write well, make me laugh and I like your blog. I'll be back.
