Timothy: Ah! Sorry, sorry! Hold on! I’ll clean it up! I’ll just go wring this out — I’ll be write back — Just hang on! Um…can I still go? Please say I can still go!
Later… Kids: Hey, Tim! Why are you packing? / Didn’t get adopted, did you? Timothy: No, I’m going on a trip. Kid: Yeah? Where? Timothy: I can’t tell you. It’s top secret. Kids: Oh, yeah right! / Keep dreaming, Tim!
[sigh…] Alex: Are the other boys bothering you, Timothy? Timothy: Oh! Father Anderson! No, I’m okay. I don’t mind them. Alex: How goes the packing? Timothy: Okay, I think. Alex: Son, let me tell you a secret. On Father Maxwell’s first solo mission, he forgot to bring socks.
