Well Played.

I'm working from a coffeeshop right now; some days, work-at-home means you have to get out of the house. It's nice. Coffee, bagels, CNN, hustle and bustle.

So this kid, a boy about eight?, just walked up to me and spoke gibberish. Then he repeated himself: "Do you like YuGiOh?"

I said, "I don't know anything about it."

Him: "I can teach you!"

Me: "Well, believe it or not, I'm working. I work from home, so I can go to any coffeeshop to work. I go to different places around town on different days, it's pretty cool."

Him: "Cool." And walks back over to his dad, who is ordering breakfast and I assume, waiting for the nearby OMSI to open.

His dad to him, playfully, "Get shot down?" And with a ruffle to the head, "It doesn't get any easier, kiddo."


  1. that is ADORABLE.

    i guess dad didn't teach him to look for the ring.
