“Maksu, I know…” announces my 10-year old nephew today at dinner.
“You know what?” I ask.
“I knooooo-oooowwww…” Nephew repeats himself.
“You knoooo-ooowww what?” I ask again.
“I know what sex is.”
I did not just hear that.
That did not just happen.
I’m sorry, what just happened. Didn’t my sister give birth to you like 10 minutes ago?? Flashbacks of him as a baby came to my mind and I shake my head in disbelief of what I just heard. I definitely was not prepared for this. Suddenly my milo ais on the table didn’t taste so good anymore. I had knots in my stomach and I wasn’t sure if that was because of the nasi biryani or because my nephew now knows a stork didn’t deliver him.
