Lenny distracted himself during the movie, as he tried to comprehend the logic of buying expensive and hot coffee in 100 degrees weather. After the movie ended, Lenny’s sister, Sofia, clapped with her small little hands-- something she learned a few days ago-- and Lenny clapped with her. They got up from the floor and Lenny plopped on the sofa. Sofia tugged on his feet and as she attempted to get on with him. Lenny grabbed her and struggled to pull her up.
“Here, I got her”, Lenny’s mom said as she saw his face turn color.
Lenny took a few deep breaths and turned to his mom surfing the channels out of boredom.
“Mommy, why do adults like coffee so much?”, Lenny said curiously.
“I wish I knew the answer sweetie” Lenny forgot her passionate hatred for coffee. He wakes up to the smell of coffee everyday, but only because she makes it for his dad.
Lenny took Sofia to his room, and after attempting to carry her on his bed, he apologized and sat her on the floor. He started to clean his room by putting away the plastic dinosaurs and taking the candy wrappers he shoved under the bed to the trash.
