I glanced over at Big E and expected him to ask for water, cheese, fruit slices (the candy kind, of course), or some other random request.
YES, BIG E?
He looked at me with all the seriousness he could muster and said these wonderful words:
I MISSED YOU ALL THE TIME WHEN I WENT TO THE LAKE WITH GRANDMA AND POPPY.
I literally wanted to reach over and eat HIM for dinner.
How can he be so sweet one moment and a full-blown terrorist the next?
At that moment, I didn't care.
THANKS, BIG E, I MISS YOU ALL THE TIME, TOO. (A semi-true statement)
And by the way, his trip to Lake Oconee was about three weeks ago and I have no idea what triggered him to spill his emotions tonight.
A big hug from my little Yoyser.
