Today I go to go with Tayja's class of first graders to see Peter Pan at the Children's Theatre Company in Minneapolis.
After the show I asked Tayja if she thought I could fly.
She said, "Of course not!"
Why not I asked. Do you think I am too fat?
"No," she said. "Peter Pan has enough fairy dust to lift you."
Well, why not I pressed.
"You are too OLD," she explained. "You have to be a little kid to fly. I think that is why he did not want to grow up."
