(The Kid, at his game)
While watching "We Bought a Zoo" with The Kid
(a movie about a father, with two kids, whom lost his wife) I asked The Kid and Coach a question.
Me: How do you think Dad would manage if you guys lost me? Do you think he could handle it or would life be a mess??
The Kid: I think Dad could manage. But things would be different because we'd probably be living on an NBA bus, traveling all over the country.
Me: You think if I died, Dad would start playing professional basketball??!
The Kid: Probably. And he'd drag us with him.
Me (looking at both of them in surprised disbelief):
So what you're saying is... without me in his life, Dad would be a professional athlete?? Because being married to me, is the only thing that has been holding him back from the NBA?!
The Kid nodded.
I looked at Coach.
Coach shrugged his shoulders knowingly, raised an eyebrow and smirked a little: Listen... I didn't say it... but The Kid knows what he's talkin about...
