It is all a difference of perspective, I suppose

From Queen Bee:

Mommy! We met a new friend tonight! He is really nice, and he followed us all over the place at the playground and the park.

Really? That is nice. What was his name?

Ummmmm. Hmmmm. I don't remember.

Ace's version:

Did you hear about our little friend at the park?

Well, I heard that you acquired another child. Who was it?

Well, his name is Anthony, and he lives on X street, so I guess he just walks over to the park whenever he wants to. He was there with his shirt off. We met up with him at the big slide, and then he followed us to a buckeye tree. He asked to ride Queen's scooter, and she said that was fine.

So we take off across the street to the other little playground, and he follows us. Then we walk over to the memorial park, and sure enough, Anthony comes with us. At one point in time, Queen says "he likes me!" And I was thinking the same thing. Then he started talking to me.

So, what grade are you in?

Second. I'm over eight years old.

Oh ok. I was thinking you looked like you were in second or third grade.

Yeah. Well, I am supposed to be in third, but I flunked second grade last year. So I am repeating it.

Oh. I see. Well, I am sure you are doing better this time around.

Yeah. Well, I have some anger management problems.

Oh, really?

Yeah. I don't express my emotions very well.

Aha. Well, ok.

I'm doing ok. I am in counseling.

At which point I made sure that Anthony didn't follow my family home, didn't find out that Queen goes to the same school as he does, and that we got the scooter back in one piece.

...and these are the days you're glad you've decided parental supervision is generally a good practice.

I wonder if Anthony will be as open about his anger management issues when he's 23? Hopefully, some sweet, young thing won't be bamboozled, as it's so easy to do.

I know, Kelly. Do you know how to remove comments? I was looking around, but couldn't find anything. I have changed my settings to not allowing anonymous comments. But if you know how I can remove it, I would be forever indebted.

Hmmm . . . sounds like that boy could be trouble. Good going on Ace's part!

Yikes! You definitely don't want to mess around with someone like Anthony. We had two sets of neighbors whose children had anger management issues, and one of Drama Queen's "friends" does. Scar-ee.
