While my 12 year old son was drinking his morning hot beverage and reading the stock indexes (Mom the TSE is down! So is New York!) I jumped out at him saying
“En Garde!” with an 8 inch pepperoni stick destined for his lunch! I tried to hand him off another pepperoni stick from the pack so we could have an impromptu sword fight.
“That is not appropriate for the breakfast table Mom. And you shouldn’t play with your food.”
Fine. After he left I made forts with sheets*, and this afternoon I am making muck-pies**.
*Air dried sheets and blankets
