Here’s how the conversation went between my son and my wonderful niece (who is 19, like an older sister to him, knows that he’s gay and has the same dry sense of humor as we do) over shabbat:
Me: He (my son) is going to take driver’s ed this summer.
My Niece: That is seriously the craziest thing I have learned about him over the past few months. (To him): That’s crazy. It’s not normal that you’re taking driver’s ed already. You’re not normal.
Him: I know. It’s an abomination.
We appreciated the humor and laughed for a while, especially considering the torah reading from this shabbat.
