Conversations with My 14 Year Old Son - Part One

Surely, he knows not what he says...

We were in the middle of talking about Julien's day and he was telling me about a conversation involving history and harvesting food - it went like this:

Julien: Did you know that fat people used to be a "symbol" of wealth.

Me:  Yes, I do know that.  It puts into perspective how truly difficult life was/can be for people.

Julien:  (Laughing)  Wow, I bet people must think we're really rich.

Me:  ......  speechless  .......

~  Yes, I know he's 14 and his frontal lobe is not yet fully developed.  Not sure I'm buying that as a viable excuse.
