overheard under the Big Top #322

At a 7-11 near you:

Is that your son?

Um, no. This is my brother.

Now I realize that among a certain ethnic population here in the Central Valley it is not uncommon at all for a girl like my 16 year old daughter to very likely be a mother of one, perhaps even two children…very young children. I know this because I am in the business of catching and caring for babies here in the Central Valley. But come on…let’s think about this real hard.

Silly, silly people!
