1. Back from school.
A man with a daughter dreads a couple of things. Did I say a couple? Wrong. A LOT OF THINGS. And despite the fact that most would prefer it if these things came later rather than sooner, they will all most likely come, and some before others. To this dad, it happened after picking his little girl from school, on the ride home.
2. “Boys have a thing that girls don’t.”
Dad asked his little girl what she’d learned in school that day. He was expecting ‘ABC’ and ‘how to share with friends’ stories.
“Today,” she said proudly, “we learned that boys are different from girls!”
“My teacher said that boys have a thing that girls don’t,” she continued.
Looking in the rear view mirror, the father could only see his daughter’s hair — she was still so little.
