Staying overnight at my father’s tonight, I imagined Jack reassuring Lewis, as he is five years older.
Lewis: She’s not home yet.
Jack: She’s fine. She’s probably at Grandpa’s. Remember the snow this morning?
Lewis: I’m scared.
Jack: Oh for Pete’s sake!
Lewis: What is we have no food!?
Jack: Have you looked in the kitchen? We have food for 5 cats!
Lewis: Don’t yell!!
Jack: I’m not yelling!!
Lewis: I’m telling Mom!!
Jack: You’re such a dummy sometimes.
Lewis: You called me dummy when I’m scared? Mom will hear of this.
Jack: Sshhh! I am trying to sleep.
Lewis: How can you sleep at a time like this?!
Jack: Sshh!!! Be quiet!
Lewis: I’m allowed to make any sound I want.
