Kathleen: “Everywhere I go there are adults. There must be lots more adults than kids.”
Me: “Actually, there are always more people who have been kids than people who have been adults, because all adults have been kids, but kids haven’t been adults yet.”
Kathleen: “You’re wrong dad. You forgot about Adam and Even. They were never kids.”
Me: “OK. First, you are right, I didn’t think of them. But second, did you just say ‘Adam and Even’? It’s Adam and EVE.”
Kathleen balls up her fist and shakes it at the heavens: “So close! Curse you names!”
Every time I think we have reached the peak of surreal in our conversation the girl is able somehow to turn it up another notch. She is awesome.
