My grandson asked me if I liked his Big Daddy, who is his stepdad and my son in law. We get along well enough but there are some things I don't agree with so we really don't have much to say to each other. I guess my grandson, in all of his wisdom, noticed our lack of repartee. He decided to inquire about this little thing he noticed. The conversation went like this:
Matthew "Nammy do you like my Big Daddy?"
Me (not wanting to lie and buying time). Why do you ask?
Matthew "because y'all never talk"
Me (quick on my toes and not wanting to lie). Well, Matthew, Big Daddy goes straight to bed to watch tv when I am here so in order to talk to him I'd have to climb in bed with him!"
He got the biggest chuckle out of that idea while realizing the truth of it and I was saved from lying to my grandson.
