My daughter is making new friends for me

My wife was telling me about a couple who we are scheduled to have dinner with next week.

“I don’t know these people,” I said. “How did we meet them?”

“Clara introduced us,” Elysha said.

“Clara?” I asked. “Our five year-old daughter?”


“Yeah. Clara met their daughter on the playground, and then she met the girl’s parents, and then she introduced the parents to me. They’re really cool. You’ll like them. Score one for Clara.”

I shouldn’t be surprised by any of this. Someone recently asked me how we manage to sell out our Speak Up storytelling shows so quickly. “Where do you advertise?” he asked.

“We don’t,” I said. “We have Elysha. She knows everyone.”

And apparently Clara is now following in her mother’s footsteps.
