Tea-time conversation

Brian (son-in-law): “Is your book finished, Sue?”

Me: “Yes.”

Brian: “Are you happy?”

Me: “No, I’m bereft.”

Tate (8): “What does bereft mean?”

Tate

Me: “It means, sad, lost.”

Gil (6), who is currently writing a Jaims (sic) Bond adventure: “Well, why don’t you start writing another book?”

Gil

Me: “Because I don’t have an idea for a book right now.”

Tate: “Why don’t you write a children’s book?”

Me: “I’d love to, but I don’t think I could. You have to be very clever to write a good children’s book.”
