Another Conversation

September 9, 2010

Since the Conversations with Celia post was one of the most popular, and since I have no time for a real post, this morning I had another conversation with Celia, so I thought I’d tell you about it.

As we ate breakfast, Celia was admiring my son’s nose.

“Look at Henry’s nose. It cute! It so small-like.”

It is indeed small, owing to the fact that he is a baby, and everything on him is small.

She touched it lovingly with her pointer finger as I heard a key in the lock: my husband was getting back from his run.

“DA!,” Henry yelled through his corn cereal, spluttering milk.

“A little nose. Not like yours,” she told me.

“Honey!,” I yelled through my coffee. “Come in here to hear what Celia is saying about my nose!”

“I don’t have a big nose,” I explained to her.

“Not big so much, just pointy,” she explained to me.

    Hilarious! Hope to see you and Henry soon. We can all compare noses, quietly to ourselves, definitely not ever out loud. 🙂

    LOL. Just…lol. It is like the Universe sent Celia directly to you to help you learn to ignore personal remarks.

    Remember when we were swimming at the lake, and that little boy swam over to me and said, “you have a big nose, just like my music teacher?”

      Of course I do! You were very gracious to him and at least you weren’t trying to impress me. I will not even bring up what a small child once said to me in a pizza restaurant, when I actually was trying to impress someone.
