Kindergarten Conversation


Jacob, when asked if he made any friends yesterday in Kindergarten…
Jacob: “I played with a boy…”
Me: “What’s his name?”
“I don’t know.”
“Did you ask?”
“Yes, I asked him his name and he said, ‘I’m not going to tell you unless you tell me yours.’ I told him we had name tags.”
“So neither of you told your names?”
“Nope.”
Kids don’t care about names…neither do their dads–here’s a sample adult conversation:
Another guy: “How ya doin?”
Me: “Great.”
Pause. Silence.
“I’m Greg.”
“Greg, I’m Bill.”
“What’s your last name?”
“Taylor–Greg Taylor. Yours?”
“Smith.”
“Good to meet ya.”
Silence. “So, what do you do?”
Blah, blah, blah, blah back and forth.
Before taking leave of one another: “So, what was your name again?”
While walking off: “What did he say his name was?”

isn’t it written somewhere in Leviticus that all adults MUST wear name tags? I think that’s right. When shall we begin enforcing this?
