Rode Hard And Put Away Wet

my God, where do these days go?

Sam turns six today. Six! He's having a sleepover birthday party tomorrow night with some of his buddies. Not to get too sentimental, but I remember a time when he would have said that I was his best friend. Even if he still said that today, I'd have to wonder if he has just humoring me... trying to make an old man feel better, you know?

Last night, I overheard a conversation that he was having with my mom on the phone. He said, "Grandma, can I tell you what the word 'insouciant' means?"

Well, do you know what insouciant means? I had to have my six year old explain it to me.

I'm 41. If I don't know what it means by now...

I probably don't need to.
