Genius!

Yesterday, Eddy and I went to the car wash. We were sitting at the vacuum cleaner station afterwards, and getting ready to leave. I buckled him in and went to the front seat without closing his door (I have a button up there that’ll do it). He said quite loudly, “Hey, you forgot to close my door, genius!”

The guy changing the trashcan nearby cracked up, as did I. We bantered a bit, and I offered to drive home with the door open. Eddy wasn’t fond of the idea.

I love that kid, man.
