The Children She Never Knew She Had

Sat at some traffic lights. The 4 year old points at the Mazda MX5 2 seater next to us and the young woman in the drivers seat and says “Where do her children sit?”

I say “Maybe she doesn’t have any children.”

She says “Yes. Maybe they died”.

I look at the young woman who probably hasn’t even thought about having children yet. Then I look at the man in front of us on a motorbike and am glad when the lights change and he roars off giving the 4 year old no time to kill off his family.
