A few days ago we were in the car coming back from a friend’s house. Half way through the long journey, B surprised us with an announcement:
“Mummy, daddy… I am a girl”
Mummy and daddy were silent for a few seconds.
We have to admit that we are not very open to this sort of conversations, but we were trying to be very politically correct and modern…
Daddy: “Why you think you are a girl?”
B: “Because I say so”
At this point T intervened with a very matter-of-fact tone: “No, you are not”.
Unbelievably my husband and I kept a straight face.
Despite T best effort though, the conversation was not over.
B “Yes, I am T. I am a girl”
Daddy: “Who said you are a girl?”
B: “I did”
T: “You are NOT a girl. Boys have willies, girls don’t. You are a boy!”
Daddy (still without laughing): “B, do you have a willy?”
B: “No, it fell off”
We almost crashed the car!
