Wolfe’s Woofer: Evolution
Sunday, May 10th, 2015
“Davin and I came over to borrow your saw,” Glen said. “We’re going to do some work on Melody’s art gallery.”
“Where is Melody and Baby Grayson?” I asked.
“She’s across the street teaching an art class at Crazy Canucks. She has Grayson with her.”
“How is that new baby doing?”
“He’s fat,” Glen said. “And big.”
“He sure is big,” Davin told me. “But I don’t think he’s as big as I was when I was that old.”
“You’re nine years old aren’t you?”
“When I was your age I was already thirteen years old,” I told him.
“Never mind,” I said. “you can figure that out when you get older.”
“Where did people come from?” Davin asked.
Glen said, “Adam and Eve had babies and then their babies had babies and so on. “
“I’m going to go ask my mom,” Davin said. “She told me something about monkeys.”
Davin ran across the street and returned a few minutes later.
“You lied to me,” he said to Glen. “Mom says that we were monkeys first and then we did something called evolution and became human beings. Why did you lie to me?”
“I didn’t lie,” Glen said. “I was talking about my side of the family and she was talking about her side.”
