Look carefully...at the seemingly small moments...in the constant shaping of souls.- Neal A.Maxwell

How old are you?
11-year old was in bed, 16-year old was in their room getting clothes ready for the next day.  11-year old sleepily said, "Would you go about that hurriedly please?"
the difficulty (and humor) of communication
     A friend asked how 16-year old was doing with his concussion.  He said, "Well, I'm having an MRI tomorrow." At the same time I was saying, "This weekend he saw the light..."  My friend gasped and said to 16-year old, "How scary!"  She wasn't talking about the MRI, she was talking about the light.  My complete statement was going to be, "This weekend he saw the light and recognized the importance of rest."  She thought I was saying that he had had a near death experience.

     One neighbor has a stuffed turkey in their yard.  Another neighbor has a plaster pig on her porch.  The neighbor with the pig said, "This way you know where to go for Thanksgiving dinner.  My house if you want ham.  Their house if you want turkey."

How's that again?
     Husband and I were not home.  16-year, already suffering a concussion from soccer, slipped and hit his head on his bedframe.  11-year old (who had a concussion after hitting his head on the ice while ice-skating this August) tried, unsuccessfully, to reach us by phone.  Following is the account 16-year old gave me the next morning:
     "11-year old would not let me sleep.  He kept poking me and talking to me.  He said that I needed to wait for dad to come home and check me out.  I decided to take a shower but 11-year old was afraid I would slip again and wouldn't let me shower either."
    I asked, "How could an 11-year old keep you from showering?"  16-year old replied, "He sat on the lid of the toilet and pulled funny faces while staring at me."
     I was impressed and amused by 11-year old's clear thinking and ingenuity.  I e-mailed my dad and brother to tell them.  The next day I told a friend while we were walking.  That afternoon I told 16-year old that others were as amused as I by 11-year old's no-shower tactic.  16-year old said, "Mom, that's why I shouldn't tell you things."  I asked, "Why not? It was funny."  16-year old said, "I know it's funny, that's why I said it - it's not what happened though, I made it up.  11-year old simply asked me not to shower in case I slipped again and I said, 'OK'." 

The necessities
Neighborhood lady's kindergarten great-grandson was invited to spend the night at a friend's.  He packed his backpack in preparation: spiderman costume, Nascar driver costume, Santa hat and Children's bible.
