Overheard in the truck:
KatyBeth: “Um, Dad? You weren’t serious about playing in the splash fountain with me, were you?”
AD: “Sure, why not? It’s hot out there.”
KatyBeth: “but you’re, like, 43 years old. And your chest is hairy. And you’ll have your shirt off.”
AD: “Are you saying you’re embarrassed to be seen playing with your father in the splash fountain?”
KatyBeth: “Uummm… yeah. If there are other kids there watching.”
I suppose this is the year when I start having to drop her off a block away from school, and am forbidden to kiss her goodbye.
Excuse me while I slink off to the No Longer Cool corner and cry.
