We were on our way to the bowling alley this morning. My sister had Anya and A, one of my charges this week, and I had Ez, C, and S, the other two. As we're driving along, Ez asks what "year" the boys are, meaning Chinese zodiac.

Me: Well, I think A is a dragon, but I'd have to look it up. And C's a monkey like Anya, and S is a dog like you.
C: When is the year of the rabbit?
Me: This year is one. And I'm a rabbit.
C: Okay, so that was what, like 1523?

Yes, my friends, I am 488 years old.

If you are, I am too -- that explains the crackling and popping in all my joints! We look damn good for 488, don't we?

Did you allow him to complete the drive to the bowling alley, or did you punt him out of the car? I'm a little tired at this point in the summer, one could say. ;)

I said, "You know, that's like the fourth time you've called me old. You are dangerously close to not being my favorite anymore." He just laughed.

That's my boy!

He's been coming up with some zingers lately. First he uses you as a shield yesterday and now this. Clearly he needs some sensitivity training......

I just cracked up. I remember being that age and thinking people in their 30s were elderly.

This is why I tell your children I'm 12.
