This morning there were two things odd about Josh coming downstairs. (A) we didn't have to wake him. And (2), he made a beeline for the garage. When he came back in he was mumbling something about his bike.
Josh had received a phone call from a friend telling him that he, the friend, had just seen someone riding a bike that looked like Josh's. Josh has at least $70 tied up in his Schwinn so he got right up to check on his prized possession.
Now I just had to ask Josh a couple of questions. The first being, "Have you looked at your bike and compared it to the other bikes in the garage?" Yes, that was more of a rhetorical question to set up the next one.
The second was, "If someone were to steal a bike from our garage, would they take yours?"
That got him laughing.
