Angela to Logan: When you play with the little kids, can you work on... [struggling to articulate the concept] ...making them feel confident and comfortable instead of, like, terrorized and overwhelmed?

Logan: Sure!

[Angela and Mark look at each other in satisfaction.]

Logan: Hey, Haley! Levi! Wanna play death tag?

[Angela and Mark's countenances fall.]

Logan, continuing: I'll chase you with my scythe!


  1. Thanks for the laugh! I'm so glad others have to deal with conversations like this:)

  2. Well, at the very least, may I compliment him on his wonderful vocabulary.

  3. Isn't there some value in learning to run for your life from older siblings? I am such a slow runner and I always blamed it on being an only child...

    I love this story and I love the way you couched it first which, some day, he will cite as having left an imprint on his soul. Maybe on a mission or something.

  4. In a similar vein, Christopher is trying to figure out how to be Percy Jackson for Halloween. I have been unable to convince him that Riptide should be displayed as a magical pen in his pocket rather than as a full sword.
