12:14 am - I'm leavin' on a jet plane...
I had a plane ride filled with children who's parents measured their age in months. One was particularly fussy and unhappy until I started making faces at her. Then she cheered right up. :-) I could tell her mom was faintly distressed that she cheered up for me and not for her. Her explanation was that my glasses made me look like her dad. :-)
I think it's just that little kids like me because I'm still a little kid myself in a lot of ways. :-)
The other kid was being adopted from Guatemala. She was very quiet and wide-eyed most of the time, though she grinned at me a few times because I was being silly. :-) Her new mom fussed about her liking men so much and wondered aloud if this would be a problem for her in the future. That kind of ticked me off, but I kept my mouth shut.
