I returned home from trivia tonight to find a little boy who was still wide awake and had, apparently, been waiting hours for a chance to get into the office room and the treasures within.
Miles seems to be a generally happy kid, but tonight I learned that, when particularly moved, his capacity for complete dismissal can be cold, swift, and relentless.
