I tell my son he doesn’t have to go to school today. Today is Lord Krishna’s birthday, Janmashtami.
He asks me, “How old is Krishna?”
“I don’t know,” I say. Wrong answer. So I add, “Probably a few years older than you are.”
It is time to change the topic and/or escape from the area before he remembers that the Krishna who went to war with the Pandavas was quite old, probably as old as his parents.
