all kinds of new revelations

Conversation with Misaki and Emi:

Misaki: I don't want to get married.

Me: OK. (I'm listening but I'm not sure where she's going with this so I'm being neutral)

Misaki: No, I don't want to get married.

Me: OK.

Misaki: (almost crying) No, I don't want to get maaaaaaarriiiiiiiiiiiiied.

Me: Why not?

Misaki: Because it hurts.

Me: What hurts? (I'm totally confused)

Misaki: I don't want to get married because then I have to have a baby and that hurts.

Me: You know, you don't have to have a baby if you get married.

Misaki: Really?

Emi: YES YOU DO (in her most incredulous voice)

Me: No, you don't. You don't HAVE to. You can decided if you want to or not.

Misaki: OK. Thanks, Mom!

Emi: That's not true. You HAVE to, you HAVE to. Are you sure? Are you teasing me?

Me: No, I'm not teasing you at all.

Emi: hmmm.... I don't know.

So basically I solved one problem and caused another one all in the same conversation. Magic.

I hear women in their 30's say these same things all the time!

Felicity's big thing is that she doesn't want to go to heaven because she doesn't want to die. I told her that wouldn't happen until she was really old, and she answered "you mean when I'm 11?!?". Then I felt really old.
