Scene: Sunday at Church
Setting: On a bench in the entryway/breezeway
Characters: Me, Little Man, Older Lady
Older Lady: He’s so handsome!
Little Man: cheesy grin
Me: Thank you! We are certainly blessed!
Older Lady: Does he take after his father?
Yup! Stunned silence. My brain just toally froze up. The Older Lady looked at me like I had lost my marbles.
I know the answer is, “Yes!”
But part of me was aching say, “I don’t know! I don’t know who his father is.”
K is his father.
But LM doesn’t look like him.
Regardless, I know I should have popped out a “YES” without hesitation.
I’m sure I only hestiated for a few seconds, but it seemed like a lifetime.
Gonna have to work on my response time to awkward questions….
