Maverick was on television this afternoon
so I turned it on while I worked.
Julia came in the door near the end.
The poker game is over. Maverick and Annabelle are parting.
Maverick takes girl in his arms and they smooch.
"They're not husband and wife, Mom.
That's not entirely appropriate."
Says Julia, age 6,
with an odd look on her face.
Trying desperately not to crack up
I think to myself that it would be nice
if she kept that attitude
until she's 40.
