Pew Bouncing

There are twin boys that sit in front of Laura and I at church. Most Sundays they are subtle, shy and quite well-behaved. But a couple of weeks ago they were literally bouncing out of the pew. Laura and I managed to do our best to ignore the distracting bobbing blonde heads, but despite our best efforts at reverence, we couldn’t help but to get drawn by their youthful exuberance. After the service…

Me: (to their mother) The boys were sure glad to be alive this morning!

Mom: You’re not kidding. Sorry if they bothered you.

Me: Not at all. I couldn’t help but wonder… did they have sugary cereal for breakfast today?

Mom: No, but they both slept for twelve hours last night. I think that had a lot to do with their extra energy this morning.
