It Hurts Me More Than It Hurts Her

Dana @ 5:11 PM | Filed under: General

We share stories about our kids, my dentist and I.

He has a 10 year old boy. I share stories about the eleven year old “mean girls” and he shares stories from the soccer field.

So, yesterday I was at the dentist.

“Open”,

he said, as he leaned in with whatever scary dentist instrument that he was using to inflict today’s pain. He was finishing up a story about his son with:

“Boys are easy because it’s O.K. for boys to hit each other. They can just hit each other and get it over with.”

“I know”,

I said.

“I wish that girls had societal permission to do the same.”

And then I added

“As a matter of fact what I really wish is that I could be eleven years old for just 5 minutes and beat up one of those “mean girls” myself!”

He laughed histerically.

I was serious.
