Today in the car, the FP Gal mentioned Will Hale. He is a musician who goes to the kids' preschool on a regular basis. After some general discussion, the conversation went in this direction . . .
Relia: He'll probably die pretty soon. He's pretty old.
FP Gal: He's not that old, I've seen his picture on his website.
Relia: He's older than anyone I know.
FP Gal: Do you know how old he is?
Relia: He's older than Nana and Grandpa.
FP Gal: Is he older than Pop-pop?
Relia: Yes. (pause) He's 64!
Me: How old are your folks? 65?
Relia: I mean he's 66!
Me: Let's see. Pop-pop is (mentally doing math) . . . 67.
Relia: I was tricking you. Will Hale is 68.
Me: (chuckling) Oh. (pause) Actually, I think he might be 69.
Relia: Well, I have a surprise for you. Will Hale is actually . . . sixty-ten!
Conversation ends as we collapse in laughter.
