On Guard

Our dear friends have the two cute kids. We’ve spent enough time with their family over the last couple of years, that we’re all pretty comfortable with one another.

The other night at their house, I excused myself from the conversation to use the bathroom. I flicked on the light, closed the door, lifted the toilet seat and was just about to undo my zipper when I heard the doorknob twist. I stopped what I was doing and turned around to see four little fingers curl around the inside of the opening door. Next a little head poked through.

Little buddy: Mr. Aaron, what are you doing?

Me: I was about to go to the bathroom.


Little buddy: Pee?

Me: Yeah.


Little buddy: I have to go pee, too.

Me: Is that right?

Little buddy: Yeah.


Little buddy: Wanna have a sword fight?
