“My dad died.”

“No, he didn’t.”

“Yes, he did. He died at Christmastime. He died.”

“No, he didn’t. That can’t be true.”

My son answered with gritted teeth. “It is true. My dad died. My mom is a widow.”

“I don’t believe you.”

Enter: Escalated Altercation.


I’m sorry, buddy. Sometimes it’s hard for people to wrap their mind around it.

  3. Dang. Nuff said.
