NICHOLAS: Daddy, when we get home, will you torture me?
DADDY: If you want, sure.
SIMON: Me too, Daddy, me too! Please?
DADDY: Oh, all right, you too.
As you've no doubt figured out by now, our family's sense of humor is a little bent.
BTW, as a follow-up to the last entry, it was just as I anticipated--Simon came home perfectly happy and chattering about all the things he'd done in school. So no harm done, and he doesn't seem to be distressed about going again tomorrow.
