I’m writing this now but it won’t be published for a few months so as to protect the innocent.

I overheard a conversation today, a friend’s daughter was visiting us and, as usual, Toby was running around the house naked (he gets that from me). The conversation got around to the differences between boys and girls and the little girl said that her daddy didn’t have a ‘thing’ like Toby’s. Jami said that all boys have them but the girl insisted that her daddy had ‘girl parts’. To which Jami replied that then maybe they were just tucked away.

Which is the point at which I lost the conversation because I was laughing at my mental image of said rather manly dad doing the ‘tuckaway scene’ from Silence of the Lambs.
