I'm Admitting Defeat

If this child




lives to be 8, it will be a miracle indeed.


Tonight at dinner, Lily (5) said, "Edee looks really tired. Her eyes are half opened."


"You mean half closed," replied Benjamin.


"Well," I said, "if they're half closed, then they're also half opened."


"Nuh-uh," said Ben in his I-just-want-to-be-contrary-to-my-little-sister voice.


"Then what else would the other half be? If it weren't half opened?" I asked.


There was MAYBE a two-second pause (if I really stretch it out) before he answered, "Nickels."
