Altercation.

"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 comments on “Altercation.”

  1. Yipes... Educational opportunity - hope the disbelieving person asks their mom or dad to verify the possibility... Some things you wish we didn't have to learn about, at any age.

  2. Oh, Tricia, the unbearable truths and deep sadnesses of life.... Thank you for bearing them both so bravely and beautifully.Thinking of you and your boys "at Christmastime."
