Violet knows the answer
At dinner this evening, I had been talking/complaining about work with Mike and Ray. I was going on about some problems and potential things coming down the road with another organization.
Violet, who I didn’t realize was intently listening, chirped in…
Vi: I know the answer!
Vi: Are they boys?
(All adults snickering now)
Me: yes, pretty much.
Vi: that’s the problem. Girls are just nicer than boys.
That settles it, the definitive answer.
