It’s Not All Mary Poppins

The Social Disconnect

George: Mummy, I made a new friend at school today!

Mummy: That’s wonderful! Wow, you made a new friend on the first day of school! A boy or a girl?

George: (incredulous) A boy, of course!!!

Mummy: What’s his name?

George: I don’t know.

Mummy: You didn’t ask him? Well, maybe you could find out tomorrow.

George: (puzzled) Why?

  1. Good for him! I always prefer to avoid using names because I’ll be darned if I can ever remember them! He’ll learn a valuable lesson: Everyone is “You” or “That Guy” and eye contact will avoid the awkwardness normally caused by forgetting! 😀

  2. Hi M–it also shows what we consider important and what some children consider important! 🙂

  3. I always find it so interesting to see how children’s priorities rank. Of course a name is insignificant. But it was definitely a boy he was playing with! LOL.

  4. George isn’t quite ready for the whole “networking” thing yet, is he? Kids do have different priorities, I guess…and sometimes they make me chuckle.

  5. I’ve seen that before.

    Is this something you’ve posted earlier or something you’ve come across?
