Son D announced today that "Daddy is my second-best friend."
"Oh?" I asked. "Who is your first-best friend?"
"Sister D. of course" was the reply.
I paused, then asked, "So where do I fit into the picture?"
"Oh, Mama - you're my third-best friend."
I suppose I should be glad I am even in the running. As soon as his friends make it into the list, I am sure to be bumped out of the top ten.
