This same child was recently caught slyly rummaging in the pantry and went running from the room. I laughed and called him back, whereupon he threw the entire contents in his fist (butterscotch chips) up in the air.
Immediately I thought of a scene from Ocean’s Eleven when a would-be casino robber exits the casino amidst a flurry of paper notes. My son showed this same sense of idiotic panic, and it was the funniest thing I’ve seen in years. Wish I had a photo of the actual event, but this will have to do.
(What this whole little scene says about me and my effect on this child is another matter!)
