"Look! This picture shows the snakes skeleton!" I cry. My little brother's eyes open wide, he points with enthusiasm toward the snakes long and fatal fangs. I try very hard to look as engrossed as he does, but secretly, I just want to skip ahead to less disgusting pages of the reptile book. I read out the part about how a snake swallows its prey whole, I watch a shudder pass through my little brother, then he smiles and shouts "COOL!" before I hastily turn the page.
I walk into Mr.C's bedroom, he is checking in his slow and careful way if he has remembered to pack his favorite tee-shirt. He looks up and sees me, I smile and say, "Have a great time buddy!" . "Yeah...thanks I will." He answers. I watch the beginnings of a smile play upon his lips, then he mumbles slowly, "I have never stayed in a hotel before!" . I laugh, his eyes light up, I can tell he is very excited! "Well, I hope you and Dad have a great time at the suncorp stadium!"
This makes up my day. Just so.
