That was the question posed to me yesterday by Eoin – 3 and a half … nearly 4 years old as I sat in their home helping his sister with her homework.
The conversation continues:
Me : No … never been married.
Eoin: So … when are you going to get married?
Me: I’m not.
Eoin: Ever? Ever?
Eoin: Why not?
Me: I really love living alone.
Eoin: But you have to
Me: No, I don’t.
Eoin: Yes you do.
Imagine that said a few more times.
Eoin: But Liz,every body has to get married sometime
Eoin: Because they have to
Me: No they don’t
Eoin: Yes they do
I turned away to help Maeve with a spelling thing but noticed his little eyes gleaming at me.
Eoin: (having the final word after 5 minutes of silence) You’ll have to get married sometime and that’s it!!
I do love a different world view.
