Forbidden Fruit

The saying goes, "There is more than one way to skin a cat." As gruesome as that sounds, it’s nothing compared to the sound a little boy makes when his sister unwittingly picks up and chews on one of his toys.

Let's forget for a moment that the little boy in question has several tractors. And that at any given time, he's horded more around him than he can possibly play with at once. None of that matters, because this tractor is the favorite one he isn’t currently holding.

Dear reader, I’m sure you can almost hear the sound that was made at the moment Ellie touched the beloved farm implement. The sound was so much more than loud. My alarming new case of tinnitus is proof. And in case you’re wondering, two crying children can almost harmonize. Maybe that’s how Donnie and Marie got started?
