Most days when I am home, I walk Dylan and Carson to school. It’s a short walk, but we have some interesting discussions along the way. Yesterday, Carson and I had this exchange:
Carson: Potsy, why are all your friends in other parts of the world?
Me: You’re right, Carson, Potsy doesn’t have too many friends around here, but I have lots of friends all over the world, and I am lucky to have them.
Carson: How did you find them?
Me: Well, I’ve been traveling all over the world for many, many years, and along the way I made friends in lots of countries.
Carson: Like where?
Me: Well, remember before Christmas I went to Germany? And when I was in Germany I saw old friends, like Patrick, Julian, and Martin, and made some new ones, Sven, Agnes, and Wiebke. That’s a girl.
Carson: Do you know any Wolfgangs?
Me: No, I don’t think I do. Wolfgang is a nice name, but not very common anymore. Do you know any Wolfgangs?
Carson: Yes, Mozart.
