Today was picture day. Claudio came in his best button down shirt with a fancy corduroy jacket over the top. His hair was perfectly slicked.
As I was herding my kids to line up to get their pictures taken, I caught the following conversation:
Picture lady: Oh don't look fancy! Go ahead and take a seat with your knees facing forward. That looks great. Ok now can you put your hand down?
You look great, I just need that hand to come down.
Your hand is blocking your face can you put it down?
Why do you have your hand like that?
Claudio: It's holding my hat
Picture lady: But you're not wearing a hat.
Claudio: This is how Mario poses in all of his pictures.
Well he's not wrong.
I finally met Claudio's mother today. The first thing she said to me was, "He doesn't talk about Mario too much, does he?"
Hmmmm... How much is too much?
