My Sentimental Moment For The Year

Today my son asked me what my favorite planet was, and this turned out to be a trickier question than I would have expected.  While I rattled off the planets and what I liked about each of them, privately I found myself thinking about the time in my life when my answer would have been “Any planet but this one.”

“But you wanted to know which planet is my favorite, right?” I asked him.

My son nodded.

Tousling his hair, I said, “Whichever planet you’re on, slugger.”
