Taking our son aside, I asked him, “Why did you hit Gayle? Is there a reason you did this to her?”
Out it came, the best reason on earth to hit your neighbor. His reply was, “She said she was Davie Crocket - - and I WAS Davie Crocket!!”
Covering my mouth, I had to keep myself from laughing, because to me this was so funny!
Davie Crocket was big on TV in those days, and to be like Davie was the dream of every red blooded young boy, and apparently little girls too!
As adults we probably may not get into actual battering fights, but often there are neighborhood arguments that are just as silly as wanting to be Davie Crocket.
