scene: the ride home from work.
i was driving.
the kids were sitting in the back.
(in case those two details needed clarification.)
the boys were quietly talking to each other in the back about their days at school.
i was partially listening to some song or another and partially engrossed in my own thoughts.
until i suddenly heard applause.
i checked out of my own thoughts in time to here anth declare, "good job benny!!! i didn't know you knew the word 'torture!'"
i try not to be too concerned by what my children determine to be moments worth celebrating.
