Frankie and The Boy
The Boy wanted to know why the Scottish lady didn't want her daughter shooting a bow and arrow.
"The mother doesn't think girls can shoot bows and arrows...only boys should do that."
Honestly, I really don't know what the cartoon mother thinks...I haven't seen it. I'm just guessing.
"Well that's stupid girls can shoot bows and arrows...I saw it in the movie."
Here we're still inside the logic of the cartoon...for all we know, at this point, girls shouldn't be shooting bows and arrows. It's a damn cartoon. So...
"What you want is a girl that's pretty and likes princesses and purple and all that stuff you hate...but, she's tough too...and she can shoot a bow and arrow."
That seemed pretty good to me. I'm 35 years older than this kid. I've been married for 16 years...what do I know? He filled in the details for me..
"What you need is a girl that will fight the po-leese for you. That's what you need."
I've never been prouder to be a Daddy...even the first time I was able to push of one of my chores off on him, I wasn't this proud.
"Hahah....yeah. Just make sure you mind your manners with a girl like that."
