Debbie looked at me and asked what ‘prodigious’ meant.
“Large,” I said, “remarkably so, titanic in size.”
“Titanic?” she asked. “Like that famous ship that sank?”
“No, Daddy,” she said. “I watched the movie with Mom, silly.”
“Oh, she didn’t tell me that you watched that movie together.”
Since she threw you out of the house,” Debbie said, “you two barely speak to one another.” She let out a deep, disquiet sigh.
“The issues between your Mom and me have nothing to do with you, sweetie,” I said. “We both love you very much.”
“Yeah, I’m sure that’s what your relationship coach told you to say, right?”
