Marcus: How did Christmas happen before Jesus was born?
Michael with pins and needles: There are bees buzzing in my foot.
Marcus: Did someone invent languages?
Marcus: Did someone invent God?
Marcus explaining a situation at prep:Isaac wasn't sulking. He was just... grim.
Michael often takes a book to bed - usually a picture book or a little pocket dictionary or something like that. I found him this morning snuggled up with the Modern Medical Counsellor by Hubert O. Swartout (c. 1950), leather-bound and running to about 300 pages.
Me: Did you have that in there all night?
Michael: Yes. It's called Duck the Chick.
