“Do you know who the first Top Banana was in our class?” Eden asked, referring to the title conferred upon the children in her class, usually near their birthdays, playing on the Curious George theme in place.
“Who?” I asked.
Alex is a mischevious looking boy with blond hair and sparkling blue eyes who, despite appearances, is very sweet and, most importantly, Eden’s beloved.
“Mmmm…” I murmured and looked at her meaningfully.
“He was six…but now he’s six and a half.”
“Time flies.” I said.
“Do you know what actually flies instead of time?”
“What?” I asked.
“How’s that?” I was really curious how she was going to explain this.
“Well, there’s Jack in the movie “Hook”; our dog, Jack; the Jack in Lydia’s class and TWO Jacks in my school. That name is just flying around everywhere.”
Of course she’s right.
Too soon she’ll know that I’m right too.
