"Can I give you a hug, bubby?" Big Kid asked little kid.
little kid stared at him for a moment. "Have you washed your hands?" asked the boy who unashamedly eats his own earwax and has his hands down his pants more often than not.
"Yes! I washed my hands and face after dinner, with soap. So I can hug you?"
"Go wash 'em again. I want 'em washed 2 times."
"You're mean, little kid," I admonished,"That's really rude of you..."
"It's okay, mom. I don't mind washin' my hands again. It's worth it," Big Kid said as little kid sat there smugly.
