Overheard on the Fourth of July

At dusk, Elder Son and his buddy hunt among the lawn chairs and blankets layed out for the coming fireworks in search of their parents.

As they approach the husband and me stretched out on the ground, Elder Son says, “I think they’re around here somewhere. The closer we get to them, the more embarrassed I feel.”
