When “I Love You” Isn’t Enough

In Humor on November 14, 2013 at 11:59 pm

“I love you,” said the seven-year-old boy whom I was driving to his karate lesson.

His three-year-old brother and two-year-old sister were in the back seat of the car with him. They are at an age where they act instinctively, so I always get lots of proclamations of love from them. The seven-year-old shows me that he loves me, but he rarely says it.

Today, however, I must have done something to deserve hearing how he felt about me.

“I love you, too,” I said.

“But,” he said, “I will love you … even when you’re dead.”

“That’s so nice,” I said.

He continued, “I’ll even go to your funeral.”

“Oh, thanks so much,” I said.

When do you think that will be?” he asked as we pulled into the parking lot.

“Hopefully, after I pick you up and take you all home,” I said, as I unlatched the buckles from his car seat and watched him enter the karate studio.

  1. That is hilarious! “When do you think that will be?” And your response was excellent!
