What part of party ...

After catching the end of AWAY WE GO (again), I say to Dave, "Promise me something that I can't think of right now that's funny and heartbreaking and tender that ties back into something that we just experienced together (preferably written by Dave Eggers)."

He says, "What part of party don't you understand?"

I say, "I don't know. Please stop asking me that."

Moments later, my 14 year old asks me permission for something, and I say, "What part of party don't you understand?"

"If it was Dad, I could have covered my ears in time, but I just didn't see it coming from you."

This is how the day goes. It doesn't have to make sense.
