The Kids are grounded and it really affects The Younger the most. He kept hanging around me, which is a sure sign that he's bored.
“So let me guess,” I said. “You're bored.”
“Well, look behind you,” I said. We were both in the kitchen at the time, with The Younger standing in front of the kitchen sink. He turned to face the sink, which was full of dishes. I nodded towards the sink.
“But I'm not that bored,” he said.
Later on in the day, he got that bored and did the dishes without prompting.

ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
