You take the good, you take the bad, you add a 5-year-old, and then you have the facts of life.


Says my 5-year-old niece to me, “You need to have a job before you can have a daughter.”

Say I, “Oh? Why is that?”

Says she, “Because a daughter is going to go to a store and look at all the beautiful things and then she’ll say she wants that and that and that and that.”

Say I, “Oh. I see. And after I have a job, how do I then get a daughter?”

Says she, “You just go to Japan and ask everyone if anyone wants to be your daughter.”

Is that how it works?? Noted.

[With apologies]
