People watching isn’t limited to the mall. While at the Department of Motor Vehicle, I got to watching a boy of about seven and his younger brother.
The pair were playing at the feet of their father. When dad was called to the counter, the older boy leaned into his younger sibling and stated as a matter of fact that their father was in trouble.
The younger lad asked, “How do you know?”
His older brother responded, “That lady used his full name – like mom does when we do something wrong.”
At least she didn’t say it through clinched teeth.
