Tonight I visited one of my neighbors, a Muslim family, around 9 pm just as they were breaking their Ramadan fast for the day. They have three kids, two of them boys aged 7 and 8 that I tutor/play with on a weekly basis. The 8 year old said “Now that we eat at 9 p.m., you can come eat with us every night.” I smiled and said the family would certainly get tired of me after a few nights of that. The 7 year old looked me in the eyes and said very seriously “I would not get tired of you.”
