on the playground

"What's your name?" ask the kids on the climbing bars, a girl and a boy just about his age.

He tells them his name. "That's a boy's name. You're a girl."

"I'm not a girl, I'm a boy."

"You're a girl, you have long hair."

"I'm a boy."

"And you're wearing a pink shirt and girl shoes."

"This is my Kirby shirt. Girls don't have to wear pink. Anybody can wear pink."

"How old are you?"

"I'm seven, how old are you?"

"I'm seven too, in first grade. Are you in first grade?"

"Homeschool. Let's go swing."
