Old Sayings Can be Tricky

The Maker and I were having lunch together and I was telling him this fairly long, drawn-out story about how his father and I are so different. He was utterly still and listening to my every word. I explained how I was the bubbly social one and his dad was the reserved, quiet one (rock […]

Lucky Number Philosophy

The Maker: I have 11 lucky numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 5632. Dad: Hm. Is someone who has eleven lucky numbers luckier than someone who has ten lucky numbers? The Maker: No. Dad:Is someone who has eleven lucky numbers luckier than someone who only has one lucky number? […]
