A good day

Yesterday my nephew and I celebrated his 14th birthday. We ordered gigantic burgers and, while we waited for them to arrive, he unwrapped his gifts -- a new video game and a tube of Axe Facial Scrub. Then we went to see The Butler, which he enjoyed enormously.

I'm amused by his attitude toward sex. He thinks it's irrelevant and kind of silly. After the movie, I asked him if he thought Oprah's character had been unfaithful. It's not a minor plot point, but I could tell he thought it was unimportant and the conversation was a waste of our time.

He's a sweet kid. Very smart. I don't know how long he'll still want to hang around with his old auntie, and I'm grateful.

    14 - no way! Weren't he and BB just 8 and 10??

    Glad you had such a nice afternoon with him. :)
