The Secret Code

Merci:  You do know, don't you, that staring so closely at the computer screen is bad for your eyes?

Taylor:  No, I wasn't aware of that, but I'm trying to figure out what this is.  I think it's a secret code.

Merci:  It's not a secret code.  It's a jigsaw puzzle.  You move the little pieces around until they fit together.  That's something Jan likes to do to relax.

Taylor: Oh, you mean like this?  I guess Jan couldn't figure out the secret code to this one.

Merci:  There is no secret code.

Micah:  Of course there is a secret code, Taylor.  And if you work on it long enough, you'll crack it.


Merci:  What are you doing, Micah?  There is no secret code!

Micah:    Who cares?  It has Taylor's attention and she's playing on the computer.  You know how terrified she is of the screen.

Merci:  Oh, right.  We should be thankful Taylor is so engrossed looking for the secret code that she hasn't run out of the room.

Micah:  Exactly.  And after a while she'll realize there is not need to fear the computer.

Taylor:  Hey, guys, I can read it.  I've cracked the secret code.

Merci:  You have?  What does it say?

Taylor:  It says, my siblings think I'm dumb - and deaf!  I'm going back to the bedroom where I'm safe.

Micah:  I guess that plan backfired, but, still, we should be thankful for small steps forward.

We always have much to be thankful for, so we are joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop at Brian's Home
