On the way to school

The five-minute drive to school every morning yields some interesting conversations between Caleb and I . . .

Me: Caleb, who’s your best friend at school?
Caleb: Well, I have lots of best friends.
Me: Not just one?
Caleb: No. I have lots of good friends. But I’m going to pick a best friend today.
Me: Oh? How are you going to do that?
Caleb: Well, the next one who does something nice for me will be my best friend.
Me: Okay.
Caleb: Except if it’s a girl.
Me: Girls can be your friends.
Caleb: But if I pick a girl to be my best friend, then she’ll just want to get married with me.

Oh, the workings of a five-year-old mind! I had a good chuckle over this one.

  1. Of course Caleb, already being engaged, woulndn't want to encourage any friendship with other girls. Isn't it odd that marriage is already on the mind of a 5 year old?
