Playing soccer at the park with Miles, we stop to rest, lie on our backs looking at the sky. An airplane flies overhead.
“Where do you think that airplane is going, Miles?”
Earlier in the day…
“What should we have for dinner?”
“Where did you get the idea that we have cookies?”
“From an old magazine.”
(This last was a reference to a line from one of his books, Wegman’s Surprise Party, in which dogs get party ideas by studying old magazines, but it knocked our socks off that he recalled and applied it.)
