conversations with young one
Young One: Mamma, Daddy has only ever kissed three girls.
Young One: Yep. Me, you, and that girl in college who said, "Come here and kiss me, now!"
Me: How do you know about the girl in college?
Young One: Daddy told me all about it. I know she was drunk, though.
Me: What does it mean to be drunk?
Young One: It means you drink too much wine and do stupid things.
Me: Have you ever seen someone drunk?
Young One: Only on TV.
I'll leave it to him to reveal the details of his first wife to her. I'm just happy she's never seen me drunk; we do lead by example.
Richard later revealed that the conversation didn't go exactly as she reported. Admittedly, he would like to have her believe that he has only ever kissed two (not three) girls, me and her. When I met him, he was already over 40 and had kissed several frogs before finding his princess. (Ahem, that would be moi.)
They have never talked about drunkeness. I hate the TV.
