i caught them like this the other day. lucas sight-reading outloud. gavin playing the nintendo ds and charlie prank calling everyone in my call log.
they were laughing. making silly noises every time gavi squished a super mario mushroom. luc would crack up and then get back to his reading. they stayed for awhile - ignoring my photo snaps. i moved fast. click! click! from every angle. sure that this wasn't going to last long.
i wonder how they got this way. who called a truce and sat by who first? i'm certain that charlie joined in last. after scaling a kitchen barstool, up onto the counter top and across the sink to snatch up my phone.
