Boy #1: "I don't have any girlfriends, mama."
Me: " Really?" (I know this is not true. But I wait for whatever is coming next...)
Boy #1: "Well, I do. I did have two. But now I only have one."
Me: "How come?"
Boy #1: "Well, H and Z were my girlfriends. But now I only have H. Not Z."
Me: "OK. What happened?"
Boy #1: "I had to cancel Z. She shouted at me, because I didn't believe she was a vampire."
Me: "Right. Well, does she know she's been cancelled?"
Boy #1: "Oh no. I didn't tell her. I don't want to hurt her feelings."
I mutter something non-committal. Whilst I don't want him to get into the habit of not being open and honest with his friends, he is only 6, after all. And frankly? If there were a list of people not to upset, a Kindergarten-age vampire has to be pretty high up there...
