Marrying Together Two Ideas

| Related | August 17, 2012

(My 11-year-old son and I are driving home from getting groceries. We had been talking about his new cousin, who was born the month before.)

Son: “I’m never getting married, and I’m never having babies. They’re just too much work.”

Me: “Maybe when you’re grown up you could adopt an older kid.”

Son: *excited* “Yeah, that’s it! I’ll adopt a 21-year old when I’m grown up.”

Me: “I think that’s actually called marriage.”
