09/19/2017 – Empty nest

Awww, come here. So what got you? Let it out.
(sniff) It was the quiet after lunch. So quiet.
Yeah, what got me was cartoons on the DVR.
Really? (sniff) When?
Couple nights ago. Full on eye water. Couldn’t stop.
Remember when we couldn’t wait for this day?
Yeah. I’d Give anything for some running and yelling.
Or some crashing breakage, a faint whiff of fire?
Yes. (sniff)
Well, Thanksgiving break is just a couple months away.
