Here is an actual conversation I had with a four-year-old at my birthday party this evening. Note: I’m turning 30 tomorrow.
K: Do you have any kids?
Me: No. I’m not married.
K: When are you getting married?
Me: Sometime soon, I hope.
K: Before you get old?
Me: Yep. Before I get old. So does that mean you don’t think I’m old?
K: (Looking at me seriously then rubbing my upper arm with the back of her hand) No, you’re young.
(And later when I told her I’d take some balloons down and send them home with her, her eyes lit up and she said, “That would be lovely!”)
