a conversation with henderson

5 Dec

This morning in Tribeca, NYC:

Stephan (the brother): Do you know where Aunt Anna is going today?

Henderson (the nephew, age 3): Phil-la-DEL-pheee-ya!

S: That’s right!  That’s where she lives.  And do you know what Aunt Anna is going to do in Philadelphia?

Silence.

S: Is she…going to work at a gas station?

H: Naaaahhhhhhhh!

S: Is she…going to work at a bank?

H: Nehhh!

S: Is she going to learn how to become a doctor?!

H: Yeah!

S: That’s right!  She’s going to Philadelphia to go to medical school.

H: Yeah, Aunt Anna is going to Philadelphia to go to medical school AND be a GIRL PIRATE!

Sure thing.  I’ll just swing by Penn’s Landing on my way home and raid a couple ships.  No big deal.
