I stood there, like a moron, until Tyler came into the hallway.

“I thought I heard you leave, and then I thought I heard you come in, and then I heard nothing and I thought you were murdered in the long dangerous walk between the front door and the kitchen, where you were heading to make your favourite son a triple decker ham-turkey-mystery meat sandwich,” he rumbled. You know, he’s eighteen now, and his voice “broke” three, maybe even four years ago, but still, every time I hear that rumbly man’s voice come out of that mouth…

“Oh, Jesus, Mom, don’t cry, I’ll make my own sandwich!” he said, because—well, you know what I did.

I put the iPad right back where I found it.

That’s just what I did.
