l: don’t roast it so close to the flame. you will burn it!
a: but i want it gooey like yours! (sticks giant marshmallow closer to flame).

a: okay. (sighing) why does this take so long?!? i want to eat my s’more right now! i love s’mores!
r: patience is a virtue child (smiling).
a: what is a virtue?

laughter. sometimes it is just about laughter and the little (sweet) things that children/people say. enjoy your weekend with whomever makes your belly ache with laughter!
