A Conversation Over Birthday Cake

“Caleb, child, sit still in that chair.”

“I think it’s that Y-chromosome; it leaves boys uneven so they can’t sit straight.”

“Whatever. I thought girls had the Y-chromosome, and boys have X.”

“No, I’m pretty sure that boys are Y’s.”

“No, I think they’re X’s.”

“No, Daddy, boys aren’t wise.”

“He’s right about that, you know.”

“Oh yeah, well it wasn’t three wise women that went to Bethlehem.”

“That’s why it took them two years to get there.”

“Only because they each had a wife in the back of the wagon, second-guessing them across the desert.”

“Probably because they wouldn’t stop to ask for directions.”
