I asked The Boy if he had learned anything at school. He told me he learned he could play with nothing after nap. I asked for clarification.
"After nap we can only read books and do puzzles."
"You don't like doing those things?"
"No," he said. "I just wanna be at the art center."
"I understand," I said. "When I was a kid, I wanted to just read all day long and they made me do other stuff. I just wanted to sit with a book all day."
"Not me," Beastie piped up. "I just wanna play. And be dirty. Be a dirty boy."
