The Little Man’s Comments on Yesterday’s Stephen King Interview on NPR

Yesterday evening, while Kelly was working out, the kids were playing and I was in my office listening to a new interview with Stephen King on NPR. I enjoy King’s interviews immensely and this one was no different. But while I was listening, the Little Man kept coming in, interrupting and needing all kinds of attention.

Finally, I said, “Hey buddy, I’m listening to this interview.”

The Little Man frowned. He seemed to search for the right words for a moment, and then said, “But Daddy, this interview makes my ears nervous.”

Well, it was a Stephen King interview.
