The Lonely Carrot

Tonight it was just Me, Dan and Christopher for dinner. 
Courtney is out of town. Marty was at baseball practice. Nicholas was at the park with a friend and had dinner with their family.

Christopher ate pretty fast. He told us his Highs and Lows and then wanted to be excused to play outside with a friend. That's what summer's for. Great nights outside.

A few minutes later Dan reminded me it was time for him to go to Young Men's. 

Suddenly, without warning, I found myself sitting at the kitchen table finishing my dinner alone. 
It was weird. It wasn't a good alone. It was a lonely alone. 
The carrot understood. So I took a picture.

But about two minutes later Nicholas walked in the door. 
And then Christopher and his friend ran in and they were wanting 
to call more friends and then things got back to normal.

You? Lonely? Like the carrot? No.
You live in the house that everyone
flocks to....the home everyone loves.
