Man on the Bus
The crazy old man on the bus was sitting a few rows away from me, it was a relatively empty bus. An older woman right across from me was calling my baby "Miss America" and a "Real Live Doll". The crazy old man said I was still in fantasy land because the baby didn’t talk back yet.
Yup, I was right…crazy.
Then I said "I have a four year old so I know what I'm in for." He said boys were worse than girls. I said, (in that "I'm annoyed", "my child is so spoiled" tone) "My daughter thinks she’s a princess." He said "She is a princess. I wish more girls knew they were princesses."
Hmmm. My snap-judgment was wrong. Wise Old Man.
