"Dad, are you a redneck?"
The words flowed from the mouth of my 10 year old as if she was asking me to pass the ketchup or change the radio channel. Distant and somewhat emotionless.
Well, I never really thought about it. We discussed what would be a proper definition of a "redneck". If she meant a guy who tends to work outside, gets sunburned quite a bit... then the answer would be "no". If she meant a guy who thoroughly enjoys being outside in the woods or on the water and takes intense pleasure in the simpler things in life.... I guess the answer would have to be a qualified "yes".
I'm still perplexed as to why the subject came up in the first place.
