the absent birthday boy

We had fallen asleep to the sensory overload of Grievous. Obviously not quite with it, we left five items in the hotel room (all mailed to us free of charge once we realized – days later).
The Aquarium just wasn’t a suitable substitute for that darn boy. We missed his sense of humor throughout the trip. Rumor has it he was good at providing emotional comfort, too.
The drive from Boston to Agawam was quiet. Yummy chili and a couple of rounds of “sets and runs” (modified slightly) took care of the evening.
Alec, pained as we all are, you can rest in peace.
