Busy Bee Thursday
Before signing off for the night, I want to tell you a funny about Prince. This morning on our way to school, we saw my grandmother on her walk. We stopped to talk to her. Mema was wearing a kind of cross between a scarf and a towel on her head to keep her hair from frizzing in the humidity. Prince had never seen her wear this and he says, "Mema, you look like a fortune teller. Do you have a crystal ball?" My Mema did not miss a beat and said, "I don't have a crystal ball, but next time when I see you I will tell you your fortune." As we pulled away and I rolled up my window, Prince said, "But Mom, I thought you said fortune telling was fake and all that crystal ball stuff was of the devil!" I had to explain to him that Mema was teasing him and playing along with what he said, that it is fake and that only God knows the future. If I ever had any doubts about how well they listen to what I say, I need not. They listen and they will remind you verbatim of what you said at every opportunity.
