Those Kids.

Yesterday Laurel couldn’t find a book. She looked high and low for it.

“I know I was just reading it,” she exclaimed, “but now it’s missing!”

“That’s impossible,” Greg opined. “There is no way you were just reading a book and it suddenly vanished.”

Laurel’s response: “You’re talking to me and you claim such a thing is impossible?”

This morning I blew a kiss to Ethan.

He dodged it.

“Aw, man,” I pretended to pout, “I can’t believe you dodged that kiss!”

“Don’t worry,” he assured me, “Kisses can go around curves.”

“Oh, okay. That’s a relief,” I told him.

“But the thing is,” Ethan continued, “yours don’t corner well.”
