Problem

Or, as Mookie pronounces it, “poblem.” She wanted to know if she had a great-great-grandmother. We talked about that for a while and then she seemed to be focused on the real point of her question, which was about the grandmother she had who died before Mookie was a year old. She wanted to know her name, since she calls her “Grandma C.” Then this:

Mookie: And she saw me when I was a baby, but I can’t see her.

Me (sighing): That’s true.

Mookie: That’s the problem with dead people.
