GOOD COMPANY

This morning at breakfast, Aleita was having a hard time getting it in gear. Even though she was the first one to get her breakfast, Maggie and I were finishing up and she still wasn't half way through her oatmeal. As I put the dishes in the dishwasher and washed my hands, she asked, "Are you going upstairs?"

"Yes," I answered, "I have to get ready to go."

"Someone needs to stay down here with me," she pouted.

I assured her that I was certain she would be fine sitting at the table by herself while she finished her oatmeal. I started to walk out of the room and she lamented, "there will be no one here to keep me company except for my coughs!"

Once again, Aleita can be counted upon to express an alternate view of the Universe.
