Michelle, TW and I were watching TV one day last week and right out of the blue, during a commercial, Michelle said…
I got an 87 on my Biology exam! If I can do THAT then I can do ANYTHING!!!!
I blinked. Hadn’t I already applauded her mightily for the 87 on the Biology exam? Wasn’t that exam days ago? Did she just now finish processing her grade in her mind? Should I take her into a doctor or an educational specialist to see if she’s the one with the learning disorder? What in the heck brought that on?
I blinked back my confusion and enthusiastically I agreed that yes she could do anything – which is what I’ve been telling her all of her life. Except of course she can’t marry rich and stay home and shop all day. I will not allow that. Otherwise, she can do anything she wants. Her response….
What about sex work?
My answer, without so much as a blink.
Sure, but I don’t think you’ll enjoy it.
She laughed, agreed and went back to watching TV.
