Last week the family was out having a rare meal together at a Greek restaurant. I complimented Karlie on her T-shirt, which read, “I would only end up hurting you.”
“Do you know what a femme fatale is?” I asked her and her sister.
“No,” they said.
“It’s a French phrase that means, literally, deadly woman. It’s a phrase for a woman who’s beautiful, but trouble.”
The girls’ eyes lit up. “Cool!” Kenda said. “I’m putting that on my MySpace page.”
