Eternity


Seth is just getting out of his bath.  I have already kicked Simon out of the bathroom, and locked the door behind him.  The locked door draws Samantha like a moth to the flame.

Bang!  Bang!  Bang!  “Is it my turn yet?  Can I come in?  MAMA!  Unlock the door!”

“No!  Go away!”

“Is it my turn yet?  Can I come in?  MAMA!  Unlock the door!”

“It’ll be your turn in a MINUTE!”

I start refilling the bath, just for her, since I know the boys have peed in their bath.

Bang!  Bang!  Bang!  “Is it my turn yet?  Can I come in?  MAMA!  Unlock the door!”

“In a minute!  Go away!”

“MAMA!  How much longer?”

“ETERNITY!”

“Returnity?!”  She wails, “But that’s in the FALL!”
