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.
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 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.
