When we had our son I found it endlessly entertaining when I noticed that the question “How old is he?” was almost always followed up with a prediction of my son’s skills and abilities. I decided that whatever prediction they made I would just multiply by rediculous.
“Oh he must be walking now.”
“Walking? He got his driving permit last week.”
“Oh he must be talking all the time now.”
“He doesn’t really have time for conversation while he’s working on his third novel.”
