My daughter Julia came to live with me a year ago for school. It isn't easy for me to raise someone who is practically my 8-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.
Daddy is rushing in his car with Julia to get her and some equipment to a Girl Scout cookie sale. Daddy “stops” at a stop sign but he does not count how long he waits at the sign…
Julia: Daddy, aren’t you supposed to stop at that sign?
Daddy: I did.
Julia: Then why are we still moving?
