Secret Agent Lex
Tonight, the kids were playing spy games and doing secret missions and creating fake IDs. The fake IDs were the best, but since they were part of their secret missions, I am not allowed to take photos of them. Obviously.
Then, when I was tucking Lex into bed tonight, he mentioned that out of the whole world, he figured that three or four people hated him. He said it in a very scientific and matter of fact way. As if he had considered the entire population of the planet, and figured that out of everyone alive on it, there would be a few people that just hated him. And he didn't seem to care about that at all. It must be very freeing to understand that no matter what you do, some people just aren't going to like you, and furthermore, that this fact should have no impact on your own self-worth or value to the rest of the world, especially from such a young age. Probably there are three or four people in the whole world who hate James Bond, too.
