Last night I was standing on our deck grilling and the girls were sitting in the steps eating a toasted blueberry bagel from Schuler Books,  Molly went inside and Sophi sat quietly munching, thinking about deep things.  A couple girls walked by on the sidewalk, one with pale skin, one with brown skin.  Sophi watched them walk by, turned to me and said

"Dad, do some people have black and brown skin?"

"Yep", I replied.

She paused for a moment, thinking, bagel clutched in one hand.

"Cool", she said, and went back to munching, her mind already racing on to some other interesting thing to think about.
