Has Anyone Seen This Man?

Eli, one of my favourite chickadees, loves to draw. A few days ago, he wanted to draw me a picture. Of me and my family. He asked me lots of questions, and was very surprised that I wasn't married and didn't have any kids. I told him to draw me a picture of me with my husband and our children in a rose garden.

He asked me how many children I was planning on having.

I said 20.

He looked at me and said, "I can't fit that many in the picture."

I said, "That's all right, draw as many as you can, and draw me with a fat belly so it means I'll have more.

Apparently his name is Gerald.

I did point out to Eli that I don't know anyone named Gerald.

Eli replied, "I do."

"But I DON'T, not even the Gerald you know!"

"Don't worry Sam, I don't think it's that Gerald."

At least Gerald is taller than me. And look at that mouth. He'll be able to boss me about.
