My Inner Seventh-Grade Boy

Little Brother and Adventure Boy are sitting behind me playing with the domino set. First they were building lines to knock over, but then Adventure Boy started turning the dominoes into people.

He held up the double-blank domino, and said, “Look! I have no face!”

Big Brother and I agreed that Adventure Boy has an admirably sick sense of humor.

Of course, Big Brother and I share that same sense of humor. Middle Sister, however, does not–at least not when it comes to animals. Yesterday on the way to her orthopedic appointment, we passed a dead raccoon by the side of the road.

“Ohhhhhhhhhhh,” she moaned. I looked back in my mirror to see what had caught her attention.

“He should have looked both ways,” I observed.
