Jack rested his head on the window and kept his gaze on the interstate traffic.
I am always curious as to what others are thinking when they are in a stare. It thrills me to no end when my boys share their thoughts.....
Without moving, Jack begins speaking.... sharing his thoughts on Highschool and college kids "seriously" dating and their several short lived relationships.
"I just want to say to them, 'you aren't going to have any pieces of your heart left. You are giving them all away.' "
I am overwhelmed by the deep thoughts of my 17 year old. He has always been so mature and wise beyond his years. I want to express my impression...
"Aw, jack! That is a very mature and romantic...."
Suddenly Jack snaps his head up and, not listening to me, he interrupts my motherly praise.
"Hey! I'm so lucky! That dog just played peek a boo with me!"
An RV passes by his window and he continues the excited chatter about a dog popping his head up in the back window.
Jeff, with the same thought as me, quietly comments....
The moment with the mature young man is over.
Normal 17 year old boy returns to our reality.
