This morning. my 5-year-old son came up to me and said:
"Dad, it's going to be hard for me to tell you this."
It sounded like he was about to break up with me. That he had found a new dad or something. So after a long pause, I asked Ryan why it was going to be hard to tell me something.
He said, "because I have the hiccups."
He then proceeded to tell me -- in great detail and in between hiccups -- how it is difficult to talk when you have the hiccups. Then he forgot the other thing that he was going to tell me.
