On Tuesday afternoon, while Sarah and Macie ran into the Scrubs and Beyond store to find Sarah some work pants, Ivie, Bryce, and I waited in our car. As is typical these days, Ivie didn't stop talking the entire time. Here are some bits of our conversation:
Ivie: Mom, am I gonna be dead when I'm 80?
Me: I hope not!
Ivie: Man, I'm gonna be TALL!!!!
Me: Ummmm, you're not going to keep growing the whole time, Iv.
Then, about 5 minutes later, after seeing the UNC, NC State, Duke, and NC Central banners hanging over the door to Best Buy:
Ivie: Mom, what's THAT banner? (Referring to the NCCU one, which she didn't recognize.)
Me: That's North Carolina Central University. It's another school in Durham. They're the Eagles!
Ivie: Does Lance cheer for them?
Me (intrigued by the randomness and eager to share this story with Lance): No, I don't think so. He cheers for Carolina. Like us!
Finally, 2 minutes later, after moving on from Lance's apparent allegiance to NCCU...
Ivie: Mom, why did God make people who cheer for Duke?!?
Me: Good question, Iv.
