Overheard At The Wright Household

Juss came running and screaming across the dining room. He stopped. “Mom, can we run and scream?”

Me: “Outside.”

Juss: “Okay.” He and his friend go outside. Running and screaming ensues. They come inside. “Mom, it’s hot. Can we run and scream inside?”


Juss’s friend comes up to me. “Mrs. Wright, do you have anything we can make a barbed harpoon with?”

Me: “Hmm. Well, we may have a stick to which you could attach another stick.”

Juss’s friend: “It has to be really strong.”

Me: “Huh. Probably not then.”

Him to Juss. “If we’re going to hunt dragons, I think we need a really strong harpoon.”
