B – I don’t want to get married.
R – I think I’d like to get married.
B – If you get married, R, we can still live together. You and me and your wife.
R – Okay, but she would be just my wife, right?
Mom – How do you know R’s wife wouldn’t mind living with you, B?
B – I can live with R and help him around the house. I can be your butler, R!
R shows up in our bedroom in the morning.
R – Mom, I don’t have any clean underwear.
Mom – We need to buy you some more. Can you get in the car and go to Walmart for some underwear?
R – Umm… I think I’m not old enough to drive a car. I think you need to be like 15 or 16. I don’t even know if I could get a license.
Dad – Well, can you ride your bike to Walmart, then?
R – Not without underwear!
A bedtime prayer.
R — … Thank you that we were able to go to church today and please make the time go by faster at the service next week. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
R — Where did you get that book?
Mom — Someone gave it to me.
R — Who was it?
Mom — I don’t remember.
R — It was probably a girl. (Pause) Girls are usually nicer to to others than boys are.
