Kids say the darndest things

So we're getting ready to head out to see Nikki Giovanni at the book fair, and my friend, in town visiting, is talking to her 9-year-old son on the phone before we leave.

"Connie and I are getting ready to go out. We're going to see a poet," she tells him.

"Emily Dickinson?" he asks.

Oh dear. He may already be dating those girls that Amy is so worried about.
