Totally Quotable Arlo: ‘Why would anyone be friends with my parents?’ edition


This was said by Arlo yesterday morning. He’d come into our bedroom to wake us up, and, at some point during the our conversation, he wondered aloud how it was that his mother came to be in possession of not one, but two friends. I can’t remember the exact context. Linette might have mentioned that our friends from Providence, Cristina and Neal, were coming to visit later that evening. I was incredibly tired, but, when he then went on to speculate has to how she’d acquired these two friends of hers, I knew I had to get out of bed, find a pen, and get it down on paper.

    One friend I can understand, but two?

    Does anyone really understand how it is that their parents have friends?

    Powerful questions.

    At least it wasn’t, “How’d you ever find a husband?”

    Unfortunately I don’t think Bill Cosby will be bringing back “Kids Say the Darndest Things” anytime soon.
