This evening after dinner I was sitting at the table browsing the internet on my phone. I discovered what turned out to be a fairly uneventful home video of some people opening a package in their living room. Of course, as soon as the video began my girls came running to see what exciting things I was watching.

Lydia crawled up on my lap and watched for about a minute, before she turned to look up at me. I looked back down at her and she smiled, a wide smile that showed off all of her bright evenly spaced teeth.

“Is this fun?” I asked her.

“No.” she said, still smiling broadly. “I hate this video.” Then she climbed down and wandered off.

I looked to Clara who was watching her sister’s departure with wide eyes and raised eyebrows. “Well, that wasn’t very nice, was it?” She frowned.

We had to call Lydia back to the table to discuss proper terminology.

It was a really boring video though.
