2000: My Daughter’s First Play Date

Posted Jun 18 2009 10:02pm

I sat on the edge of the worn green couch, sipping warm black coffee and trying to remember how to make small talk. I tried to remind myself that I had to do this. I had to meet the parents and visit their homes before I could just leave my child there to play.

After we talked about the Holocaust, of all things, she leaned in closer. “Say”, she asked with a smile, “does your daughter have fleas? As soon as my daughter started playing with your daughter at school, she came home with fleas.”

I was hot with anger. I felt the need to defend my children, my home, and my pets. Unfortunately, I also started to feel incredibly itchy.
