Monday Minute: James Sees Pablo Escobar

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any weirder (or more embarrassing) James manages to top himself. It’s like he knows I’m looking for material on Mondays or something.


James is in italics, my responses are in bold italics.

(riding the crowded bus home from Harlem with all 3 kids earlier today)

Mom, Pablo Escobar is inappropriate.


You know that guy, Pablo Escobar.

(cautiously) Who is Pablo Escobar?

You know, that bad man with the guns.

What? Where?

He’s only for adults, but he’s not appropriate for kids.

What are you talking about?

That brownish man – he has a lot of guns and was looking at me.

Not so loud! How do you know his name?

His name was on his gun.

Where did you see his gun?

He’s coming here in 2012. But us kids can’t see him because he’s not good.

James…he’s dead.


5 minutes later

(excitedly) There he is – Mom, look – it’s Pablo Escobar!

At this point half the bus looks out the window, just in time to see a Pablo Escobar movie poster advertising the 2012 release date, and yes, there is a gun-laden man featured dead center.


We were definitely the crazy people on the bus today.
