Boys Will Be Boys


Noah watched the rain through the sliding-glass door. Sheets poured from the overhang around the concrete square. He held a purple plastic bucket and a red shovel.

The griddle on the counter sizzled. Noah looked over. Cheese dripped over the edges of the bread. Noah looked worried.

He turned back to the rain. He went outside. Noah sat down at the edge, put the bucket between his feet, and shoveled mud. In seconds his feet, his hair, his clothes were filthy drenched.

Mom interrupted, sighed and shook her head, and said, mostly, “Noah! (Lord help me.) It’s lunch time. Come clean up (again).”
