Baxter and Lyle are sitting on a chair together in the living room, facing the TV. Baxter is playing his new Pokemon video game; Lyle likes to watch all the battles. [This is probably where I should insert a formal apology to his preschool teachers.] He never asks to play, and doesn’t seem to care to, but he loves to watch and discuss what moves Baxter’s making.
Baxter just asked Lyle, “Want to see me do a hard battle? One that I’ll lose?”
Lyle, a little too quickly: “Yes!”
Baxter, incredulous: “Are you SURE? One that I’ll LOSE??”
Lyle, equally fast: “YES!”
Could there be a greater pleasure for a younger sibling?
