You Gotta Have Heart


My son’s going into 10th grade and he’s started to go out in boy-girl groups . . .

“Whoever he has for a girlfriend,” my wife says, “has to have a good heart. Has to be very giving. Because he’s an only child so he’s used to it being all about him.”

“Do you think you have a good heart?” I ask.


“You don’t think you’re a little bit too aggressively angry pretty much every day?”

“That’s not about heart.”

“What is it?”

“You don’t think you’re a little too annoying? Same thing.”
