So, (now 20 minutes ago) Seth ran from the bus into my arms--both of us relieved for the reprieve of a break from routine. His lovely driver and I exchanged "Have a great summer" greetings and Seth tore home ecstatic at the prospect of the vast expanse of summer vacation ahead of him. As he stripped down and donned his swimming trunks he said,
"I got three chocolate suckers in my backpack!!"
Me: "Really!? What did you get them for?"
"Because I done good in school!!"
Me: "Oh...what...was that?"
