Daddy, what does it mean when someone blushes?

rudy

It means either that person is shy or having a stroke.

Molly from first grade said hi to me but then started blushing.

 

 

rudy

Well, there you have it. She obviously suffered a stroke.

Oh……

ethan_authority

I heard somewhere that it may also mean that someone may be in love with you.

rudy_question

Really? Huh. I’m in love with your mom and I never blush when I talk to her.

 

 

rudy_smartass

However, your mom blushes when she talks to me. So that must mean she’s really in love with me.  I could even see her face turn red.

rudy_authority

Come to think of it, she’s always yelling at me when it happens.

 

 

rudy_question

So anyway, you like this girl?

 

 

ethan_shout

NO!

 

 

rudy_happy

Nothing wrong with it if you want to date her.

 

 

ethan

No. She’s in 1st grade. I’m in 3rd. She’s too young for me.

 

 

rudy_smartass

You hang out with that kid in kindergarten.

 

 

ethan_authority

Dad. That’s different. I’m friends with that boy.

 

 

rudy_laugh

So you’ll hang out with some dude in kindergarten but you won’t hook up with a girl from 1st grade?
What’s wrong with you?

Dad, let it go! I just wanted to know about what blushing means. She was blushing when she started talking to me.

 

rudy

Well, there you have it. She must have had a stroke.

 

 

ethan_question

Are you sure she’s not in love with me?

 

 

rudy

I’m quite certain. It’s a stroke. But if you want to, you can ask your mom.
I’m no good at this parental advice stuff.

Clearly.
