Isaac is standing outside the door of a bedroom in our undisclosed vacation spot. He is clutching a pillow like it is a club. He is trying to coax his brother Eli into opening the door. “Open the door Eli! I’m not holding anything!”
Much as I appreciate his attempt at stealth, it doesn’t seem right. “Don’t lie,” I tell him.
He thinks about it for a moment. He knocks on the door again. “Open the door Eli! I’m holding something, but it won’t kill you!”
