Today I went to the pool. With the kids, of course. I was standing in the deep end of the splash pool with my next-door neighbor, both of us keeping an eye on our swim-goggled children. I noticed her speaking to a kid I didn't recognize, so I said, "Oh, did you bring someone else?"
"What?" she said.
"Did you bring one of your boys' friends?" I said, gesturing toward the strange kid.
She looked toward where I was pointing, then looked at me and said, "What?"
"Never mind," I said. "I thought you knew that kid, because you were talking to him. He's not with you?"
"No," she said. "He's yours."
You know, I thought he looked familiar...
