"Lucy, what are you doing there?"
"What do you mean, S.? I live here."
"I know, but what are you doing at home?"
"Um, the youngest and I just finished art class. Now we're eating lunch."
"Wait. Hold on a minute. You blew off the Obama Town Meeting for art class?"
"No. I didn't 'blow it off'. I had a previous engagement. Art Class. With the youngest. Besides, I'm already voting for him."
"I'm trying to figure out if I'm appalled or impressed."
"We had fun in art today, if that helps. We read a book, then painted giant jam sandwiches and stuck paper wasps on them."
S. laughs. "Of course you did."
