“I’m sure that the little girl in that back seat was signing us.” Jesse keeps repeating this over and over.
“Jessie! We heard you the first ten times. When we were young we would wave at every car hoping they would beep at us. It’s what normal kids do!”
I give the dad look in the mirror.
“You didn’t beep! Why did you say that if you didn’t beep…. I do think like it. What if she is in trouble? You’re just going to let them drive her and hide her way! What if it was me?! I could be gone forever..” Jesse works her six year old magic on us.
“Well, Mom should we give her to them too? I mean it would be a shame for the other girl to be alone.” I smile looking at Mom. Apparently, humor is in short supply today.
