We went for a hike to Gull Pond, which actually should be called "Pond in woods infested with giant thirsty mosquitoes." We stopped at a curte little place called "Picks and Sticks" on the way home, or some ice cream.
PJ asked me later that day. "Dad, are we real?" "I think we are real" "How do you know you're real?" "That's a good question." "If we weren't real we'd have lines like they do on tv" he said confidently, if only to possibly comfort his dad.
