Why is there only a queen bee and no king bee? Nene asks.
I want to say because men don’t need women. That a queen is enough.
Instead I try for biological diplomacy. There are many small king bees instead of just one. Nene looks confused.
No, I know why, Mimi pipes up. Because there can be mums without a dad.
You’re right Mimi, I say thrilled. I wish I take credit but I think it’s her friend A who doesn’t have a dad.
Then Nene pitches in. There can be two dads too. They can get married. L and I like each other but we don’t we don’t want to do that.
Okay honey you don’t have to marry L.
