A beaming Clayton opens the screen door and holds up a Grasshopper
"Look What I caught Mom! Can I EAT him?"
I assume the look of a deer caught in headlights; looking for a safe corner to dart unnoticed
I'd prefer if you didn't?"
Clay: "Okay then. I'll eat him!"
I think we understood each other perfectly.
I didn't have a good reason for saying no,
and couldn't bring myself to say yes.
He knew he had the silent permission.
I never asked how it... (gulp) went,
but heard him telling Auntie Hannah that it was "gooey".
I'm thankful to know without having to try it myself.
Boys. What would life be without them?
