Friday Fictioneer: Billy
Billy was still in diapers when I took him to a Shakespeare Festival. It was Macbeth.
He sat on my lap and watched the play. I thought he’d fall asleep.
At intermission, it was late. It had been along day. It was time to go home.
I turned to my friend and said so, “Let’s gather our things and go.”
Billy screamed his objections with the passion of a Shakespeare enthusiast.
Several people turned to see what was wrong.
“Well,” I said to my friend, “I guess we’re staying to the end.”
Billy stayed awake the entire time.
