|(I’m running errands for my pregnant wife. While walking to a nearby store, I see two teenagers harassing a child that is only four or five years old. I shoo them away from the boy, and he introduces himself.)|
|Me:||“So, where’s your mom at?”|
|Boy:||“She’s in the store. Do you have kids?”|
|Me:||“Not yet. We’re expecting a baby girl soon, though.”|
|Boy:||“Well, she’s going to turn out nice, like you! So, I’m going to marry her someday!”|
|(I laugh, and play along while I bring him to the service desk, and wait until his mom picks him up. Six years later, my daughter comes home from school and introduces us to a friend that defended her against a bully on the playground. I didn’t recognize him, but he certainly knew who I was!)|
