Baton Twirling And Army Men
Saw my friend T tonight. We were chatting about the party they had a few weeks ago to say goodbye to her son.
He's heading overseas very soon.
Too soon for his momma.
After the party, they were hanging out in the driveway around a bonfire. T's son, pretty tall and full of brawn, picked up his father and started twirling him around. Manhandling him. Treating him like a baton.
All in good fun.
Until T got wind of it.
"Put your father down!" she yelled. "Put him down RIGHT NOW!"
Doesn't matter how old they are, they'll always be eight years old in our eyes.
