We were at the library, and Evan was desperate for friends.
Evan: May I please join you?
Grandmother: Yes, you may. Girl, tell the boy he can join us.
Girl: You may join us.
Evan: (pulls out chair and sits down) Thank you.
Grandmother: Tell him your name.
Girl: I’m Girl.
Grandmother: Ask him what his name is.
Girl: What’s your name?
Evan: Evan! And I’m silly!
Grandmother: Oh, I’m sure you’re not silly.
Evan: Yes, I am! I’m very silly!
Later he joined a nanny and her charge.
Evan: My father doesn’t like my mommy calling us “dudes.” But I don’t mind. My father is just silly.
