Me – hey, Jeff. Do you remember what happened eight years ago today? Anything significant? (See Seven Years Ago Today for a cheat sheet).
Jeff – Um, Macy was born?
Me – Yeah. Macy is eight years old today.
Two hours later.
Me – So you really don’t remember? What happened eight years ago today?
Jeff – Macy was born, right? (smiling) Of course I know what June 29 is. We went to the movies to see Charlie’s Angels.
Me – (smiling) Well, why didn’t you just say that earlier?
Jeff – I thought it would be funnier.
Eight years later and the same sense of humor. Some things will never change.
