Conversations with Alexis

Scene: Alexis and I are at a restaurant today for lunch after visiting the library. A very tall, very handsome man in his late 40’s/early 50’s comes in and the waitress greets him as if she knows him.

A: Mom is that man famous?

D: *glancing over at the man in question* No. Why do you ask?

A: She’s making a big deal out of him. *wrinkling her nose*

D: I think he’s a regular costumer like us and she just knows him that way, but he’s not famous.

A: Well he’s very tall. He should be!

D: *I grin at her* I’m not sure it works that way.

A: *dismissively* Well it should.


Oh my naive little child, how I love you so. Most men from Hollywood are short. Being tall is not the norm, but I didn’t have the heart to tell her.
