The coffee pot gurgled; the last few drops of caffeine sunshine drop into the craft.
This noise holds special meaning to Cody and Carter as it signifies that they may ask to play their beloved Minecraft. We instilled this morning rule many years ago to stop the persistent asking to watch t.v. or play video games.
~“One may not ask to use (or use) electronic devices until the coffee is done.”~
Controller in hand, they were on the couch waiting for their Minecraft world to load. I was feeding the dogs. As I walked past the window, the orange glow of the sunrise caught my eye and I exclaimed about its beauty.
Cody leapt up off the couch.
cody: Wait, Carter! I want to see a real sunrise. Whoa! This real life one is much cooler than the Minecraft ones!
And then, back he went to disappear into his Minecraft world where days are ten minutes long and you get a lackluster sunrise every morning.
I’m glad Cody thinks that real life sunrises are better than Minecraft ones.
