Dandy, on toy phone: He did?
Why was he cutting down a tree?
Did he know how boring it is to sit in a wheelchair?
Is he happy with this choice?
I'm going to have to tell Mom. She'll cry. Hang on a minute.
Okay, she's crying now.
Tell him not to be sad. I'll come play chess with him.
So he pretty much distilled the whole thing into a few sentences: boredom, regret, sorrow, hope, acceptance. I love that kid.
