Brothers

Overheard in Charlie and Wes's room, after lights out but before the absolute cutoff for needing to go to sleep RIGHT NOW so I don't get an email from your teacher about your behavior tomorrow.

Charlie: Hey, Wes, you know how when you have to go potty really bad it comes out really fast?

Wes: Yeah! And it sprays out really fast and goes everywhere? [This explains many things]

Charlie: Well wouldn't it be cool if you had to go like really REALLY bad and it shot out--

Wes: ALL THE WAY TO OUTER SPACE?!

Charlie: YES!

Wes: Like, ALL THE WAY TO PLUTO?!

Charlie [with kindness]: No, Wes, to Charon. Charon is the furthest object from the sun. Even FURTHER than Pluto.

Wes: OH, cool! All the way to Charon! [I can tell by his voice that he is smiling]

As I tiptoed down the stairs I heard Charlie explaining "If you went all the way to Pluto you'd be dead!"

(Barely appropriate church wrestling pictures taken after this morning's service, just before I hissed at them to "stand up and knock it off, we're in CHURCH" and tried not to laugh)

This is quite different from Landon and Claire's pillow talk (girls and boys- many things the same, but many things different from day 1), but I LOVE it. A copy of this post needs to go in a memory box or book or something and brought back out sometime around prom or their weddings :).

I love how boys can be both charming and gross at the same time.
