Everyday Reading: The False Story of How We Met

The False Story of How We Met


This photo, from the set of family photos we had taken in May 2012, has hung in Ella's room since we moved the summer.

The other night, as Ella was getting ready for bed, Bart said, "Ella, look how TINY you were there. Can you even believe it?"

Ella looked closely at the photo and then asked, "Was this when you guys had just met?"

I looked at her strangely and told her, "No, we'd known each other for a long time before this photo."

Without missing a beat, Ella said, "Well, then, why are you guys shaking hands?"
