Episode 2 - Pilar's Lesson/Birds and the Bees
Tuesday, April 22, 2008
You don't prepare to talk to your kids. Not about the "birds and the bees". Not about
anything. They're your kids! It's not an audience that you're not in front of every
day. I saw them when they came out of the womb. You don't prepare for that.
And with the "Jack and Jill" reference, I'm just realistic about stuff like that.
It's like Santa Claus, man. I can't give Santa credit for my work. I work my butt
off every day, I'm going to give credit to Santa as soon as he drops by? Same with
the Tooth Fairy. I'm the Tooth Fairy. Ain't nobody slipping up in my kids' room and
putting twenties under their pillow! It's me. Humpty Dumpty didn't fall off
the wall: he got pushed. I tell real stories, you know? Real. Stories.
Let me be clear: we have three housekeepers, and the one Pilar hired for the day wasn't
one of the three. Let's just get that straight. That was a new team that was trying
to be implemented, and that didn't go over well. So, that just wasn't going to happen.
But, she was getting her point across. She had an elaborate way of getting her point
across, but it was well taken. Well stated.
