Let me begin my first explaining that my son is color-blind. (This is the reason for the pink teddy bear on his bed.)
Today he came up to me and stuck his face right up to mine. "Mama, you look like an alien."
"What makes you say that?" I asked. I thought maybe it had something to do with my duck bill and three eyeballs.
Not quite. "Your eyes are neon purple with green specks," he said.
"Really?" I walked over to a mirror for a closer inspection. They looked rather blue to me.
"Yeah, Mama. What planet are you from?"
"I thought the same one you're from - Earth."
"No, Mama. You're not from Earth." He walked over to the phone and handed it to me. "You'd better phone home and find out where you're from."
Okay, then. (So ladies and gentlemen, if I find out what planet I'm from, I'll give you the news update.)
