What Grownups Need

On our way to Maine, in the car, Ben says, “I want to move to Maine!”

“Me too, honey,” I said. “I really want to move back to Maine. How do we make that happen? What would we need?”

“A house,” he said. “We need to get a house there.”

“Yes. A house is important, but what else do we need?”

“All our stuff?” he guessed.

“What do the grownups need?” I asked.

“Coffee!” said Max.

I burst out laughing. I had meant “jobs,” we need to get jobs up there.

But coffee is good, too.
