Lunch today, The Geek’s tomato soup. Bordering on heaven. Seriously. I’m showing Simon how to dip his grilled cheese into it when Ed asks me how it is.

“Delicious,” I say.

Simon, obediently dipping, says, “Dewisssus.”

“Did you hear that?”

He’s engrossed in the Sports section. “Harmpfh.”

Simon continues for about 5 minutes, dragging his sandwich through the soup, repeating, “Dewisssus. Dewissus.”

Finally, his father comes up for air and engages his son. “Simon, is that delicious?”


“Simon, is that delicious?”

Hummm. Refrigerator buzzing.

“Simon! Delicious?”


He points to his crackers. “Dewisssus!”
