My daughter Julia came to live with me two years ago for school. It isn't easy for me to raise someone who is practically my nine-year-old clone, but that is exactly what I find I am doing with Julia. Through our judo and soccer practices, reading, writing and arithmetic, Girl Scouts, and Japanese language classes, we occasionally have a conversation that connects us both in a sometimes deep and usually humorous way. Hopefully, you will be as entertained as we are.
That’s Your Opinion
Julia: Daddy, why is pineapple sour?
Daddy: Sour? Pineapple is sweet.
(Julia turns to her grandfather.)
Julia: Papa, is pineapple sour or sweet?
Papa: Pineapple is sweet.
Julia: That’s your opinion.
