This Is Not Slander
by Joanna Gilman Hyde
Dr Blair has four children:
His oldest daughter is a year older than me
and I don’t know if she is dead or alive.
His second daughter is a very close friend of mine.
His son I guess I am still on speaking terms with —
and his fourth I just wish Happy Birthday.
Dr Blair has nine grandchildren —
three of them I have never met.
He has at least fourteen great grand children
and he doesn’t even want to know that they exist.
