Me: (head phones, trying to write)
Gamma: (head phones, preparing for online virtual classroom meeting)
Delta: (comes into kitchen from outside, runs through crying)
Beta: (Follows in, comes to parlor) Good job, Alpha. That was all your fault.
Alpha: (playing Destiny 2) Wut?
Me: (removes headphones, gets up, finds Delta hiding behind door crying) What’s going on?
Beta: We were playing bridge battle. He touches the grass and says, “This is water and I’m Jesus” and runs across it. Alpha taught him that. I told him I wasn’t playing with cheaters any more.
Alpha: (guilty smile)
Me: (laughs, picks up Delta and hugs him) Good job.
