This time, S made our two-year-old laugh and laugh, in a whole new wide-eyed way. He had never seen an adult be so seriously funny.
The day after S left, my husband and I mentioned to our son that we were going to visit our relatives G and C.
"That's okay," he replied, "G and C aren't bad."
"No, they aren't bad," we said, "of course they aren't bad!"
"G is funny," he said, after a moment.
"Yes," we agreed heartily.
"But not like S!!!" he added.
