WCK and I had a political discussion yesterday morning.
"WCK," I said, "can you say 'Obama'?"
WCK was more interested in her trike than in Obama.
"Um," she said, "maybe later."
This is her typical, trying-to-be-polite response when a request annoys or displeases her. I started laughing.
"I don't think Grandma Marty would want to hear you say that," I said. Grandma Marty is a big Obama supporter. Actually, I don't think "supporter" is a strong enough word for what Grandma Marty is.
"I said," WCK repeated patiently, "I say 'Obama' LATER."
I felt a small pang of fear.
"You're not a Republican, are you?" I asked.
"I don't think so," WCK said soberly. "That's silly."
