On Wednesday night, Frank called from Iowa to say good night to the boy. In the course of their discussion, Christopher told Frank, “You know those nuns people put in their yards for decoration? Yeah, they made a movie about them.”
Normally, we have to walk a fine line with Christopher when it comes to laughing at the things he says. So even as I burst out laughing – and could hear Frank laughing through the phone – I feared that C would erupt and holler at us for laughing. Happily for everyone, he started giggling, too, realizing that he had meant “gnomes”, and the conversation devolved from there.
But I’m thinking now that a yard nun might make a good conversation piece.
