Rose #2 has been very worried about health issues lately. The news about Michael Jackson was a shock to her, I think. The other night on the couch we were reading and she leaned over suddenly and whispered to me:
"You know that Peter Johnson guy, whatever his name is, why did he have a heart attack anyway, Mom?"
I looked at her blankly for a moment, and said, "Who is Peter Johnson?"
Beat. Beat. Beat.
"Oh! You mean Michael Jackson! Well, I don't know why he had a heart attack. I don't think anyone knows exactly."
