Awkward Opera

I was telling my sister Sarah (really go click on her name) one of my Max stories the other day. She laughed appropriately, and then said, “You know, you gotta write these things down. You should blog about Max.” So, apparently she never reads The Pilver. Well it is a funny story so I am going to indulge her, just to get her over here.

Max hasn’t lived with or near his father since we divorced when he was one year old. It is certainly something we talk about. I explained the bare bones of what a divorce is. He does not fully understand the whys and the hows but it is something he accepts.

A few months ago, a few months after I met tg, I decided that it was time for the two of them to meet. Max isn’t shy and one of the first things he ever said to him was, “Do you know why my daddy doesn’t live here?”

I was so nervous already, and this conversation start-up wasn’t helping things at all. Then tg waited for the answer and max sung in a beautiful opera voice, “DIIIIIIIIIIVOOOOOOOOORRCEE!”

So that was enough of an ice-breaker.

    Enjoy that young honesty. When they become teens it’s what you’re afraid they WON’T say versus what they might say that you worry about when introducing them to someone new in your life.

    I think he has a future on Broadway–or comedy. 😉

    Very cute. It takes awhile for kids to develop that “tact” filter. My son is going to be 8 this summer, and his is still pretty loose.

    I don’t know who this “tg” is or what his relationship is to you, but based on the very little you mention of him here, it seems pretty clear to me that he is a devilishly handsome, no-nonsense bad-A mofo with a sharp wit and a heart of gold. This incredible specimen…this Cadillac-of-Men, if you will…probably spends his days fighting crime and building houses for the poor and his nights partying with millionaires and breaking the hearts of A-list Hollywood starlets. You should probably date the crap out of him, or at least get a picture of him in your apartment, so that some day when people say, “Hey, have you ever heard of that mega-stud ‘tg'” you can say back, “Heard of him? He peed in my toilet!”

  8. Billy says:

    That is the funniest thing. Is he a tenor?

  9. kristiane says:

    At the moment he is a soprano 🙂
