Miriam, the Gender Specialist.

We were sitting in the warm sun, after a morning of flu...

Mom: "You have a beautiful heart, Miriam."

Miriam: "Thanks, mom."

thoughtful pause

Miriam: "Girls' hearts have roses in them."

Mom: to self "Oh, gag me!"

another long pause

Miriam: "And boys' hearts are full of thorns."

Mom: wonders to self "Huh. A Sacred Heart reference?"
