Called for dinner

April 18, 2017

Sometimes it felt like dinner preparation could be illustrated by some whacked-out algorithm involving multiple levels of human skill, human height, and human volume.

Either parent might prepare the meal and when possible the complementary parent would bark orders to the troops:

Deke, silverware!

Ward, beverages and cups!

Boys!   Come to the table!

Hope!  You are on hand-washing then serving.

Hope?  

….

Hoooopppppeee!!?!!!

Where is that girl?

Boys?  Go check on your sister then come to the table!

A few minutes pass before re swirling chaos of little boys comes barreling down stairs as a unit of light and sound exclaiming

She was sleeping!  Don’t worry!  We woke her up!
