Daddy, what does it mean when someone blushes?
It means either that person is shy or having a stroke.
Molly from first grade said hi to me but then started blushing.
Well, there you have it. She obviously suffered a stroke.
I heard somewhere that it may also mean that someone may be in love with you.
Really? Huh. I’m in love with your mom and I never blush when I talk to her.
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.
Come to think of it, she’s always yelling at me when it happens.
So anyway, you like this girl?
Nothing wrong with it if you want to date her.
No. She’s in 1st grade. I’m in 3rd. She’s too young for me.
You hang out with that kid in kindergarten.
Dad. That’s different. I’m friends with that boy.
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.
Well, there you have it. She must have had a stroke.
Are you sure she’s not in love with me?
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.
