hannah’s emergency (soLs)
I’m writing. Sam is next to me watching a video about how planes fly. Hannah is on the other end of the couch reading, “The best book I’ve ever read in my entire life.” The others are at sports’ practices.
“Oh no! I have an emergency! I don’t know what I’m going to do!” Hannah’s panic breaks everyone’s concentration.
“What’s the matter?” I ask.
“I don’t want to stop reading, but I have to go to the bathroom soooo bad. Like really bad! But I can’t put this book down.”
“That’s an easy solution,” Sam says, turning his attention back to the iPad, “Just take your book with you.”
“Oh! Oh! You’re brilliant!” Hannah says hopping off of the couch and darting to the bathroom, her nose stays in her book.
Sam snickers. “I think she means practical,” he says.
I find them both hysterical. It’s these ordinary moments that remind me how blessed I really am.
