The things kids say...

I was sitting on our front porch yesterday enjoying my new freedom (first day in almost 6 weeks without a cast on my leg--YEAH!), when our neighbor returned from his Monday golf game.

A tall, bald man was helping my neighbor get his golf bag out of the back of the car. My neighbor, an elderly Japanese man, owns an upscale restaurant. He and his wife have told me stories about the well-known people who eat at their restaurant--many of them Chicago athletes. As the tall man helped our neighbor, I was thinking to myself "hmmm, he's probably a Chicago Bear or something."

I got sort of stuck in my thoughts when I realized that Sammy was saying over and over, louder and louder..."who's the baldy Mommy, who's the baldy?"

As the man in the big, black SUV drove away, I turned to shush Sammy and remind him that it's impolite to call someone a "baldy." Our neighbor called over "Do you know who that was?" An immediate wave of fear and embarassment rushed over me...

It wasn't a ball player, but it was this guy:

Andy Wachowski--director of the Matrix series and Speed Racer the movie.

I'm just never quite sure what will come out of Sam's mouth next!
