Staring at computer screens,
mind wandering off to weekend plans…
“Pssst!”
Head turning, eyebrows raising
“What’s white and red?”
Head cocking, half-heartedly considering
“Pink!”
Eyes rolling, suppressing smile
“Pssst!”
Head turning, eyebrows raising again
“What’s big and yellow and eats rocks?”
Eyebrows still raised, expectantly
“A big yellow rock eater!”
Smiling, reluctantly giggling
“What did the general say to his troops before they got in the tanks?”
Giving full attention now,
No more computer screens
“Get in the tanks!”
Grinning, giggling uncontrollably
“What’s red and smells like blue paint?”
Still giggling, waiting for answer
“Red paint!”
Laughing together, abdominals sore
Saving Friday afternoon.
