ALLISON: Oh. Nick. I don’t know if that suit will fit.

NICK: I want to wear it.

ME: Buddy, don’t you think you’ll feel more comfortable in something else?

ALLISON: That suit is a little small.

NICK: I want to wear it.

ALLISON: I guess he will be wearing a graduation gown.

ME: It’s his pre-school graduation. I guess if he wants to wear the suit, let him wear the suit.

NICK: I do. I want to wear it.

ALLISON: You do look really good in it.

ME: As long as you don’t raise your arms and don’t move at all.

ALLISON: It’s really small, isn’t it.

ME: It’s pretty small, yeah.

NICK: I WANT TO WEAR IT!

ALLISON: Okay, okay. You can wear it. Do you think you’ll be hot?

NICK: No, mom.

ALLISON: Okay. Let’s just go, I guess.

ONE HOUR LATER

ME: You see him?

ALLISON: He’s in back. I guess they’re gonna sing some songs, first.

ME: Oh, man listen to that. What song are they singing?

ALLISON: I can’t even tell. Something about raindrops or monkeys jumping on beds or something.

ME: Uh-oh.

ALLISON: What.

ME: He doesn’t look happy.

ALLISON: What’s he doing?

ME: Oh, God. He’s trying to get my attention.

ALLISON: Oh no. (whispering) It’s okay! Sing the song!

ME: He can’t…what are you doing? He can’t hear you.

ALLISON: He looks like he’s singing. But he’s not doing any of the hand motions.

ME: Something’s wrong. He’s not okay.

ALLISON: What should we do?

ME: I don’t know. (whispering) It’s okay, Nick! Just sing! Sing!

ALLISON: He can’t hear you!

ME: I know!

ALLISON: Is he okay?

ME: I don’t know!

ALLISON: Okay. Okay. He looks okay now that the song’s over.

ME: Good. That’s good. Phew.

ONE HOUR LATER

ME: Hey, buddy!

NICK: Dad!

ALLISON: Congratulations!

NICK: Thank you!

ME: So bud…what was wrong during the song? You looked like you were upset about something.

NICK: IT’S THIS SUIT, DAD! IT’S TOO TIGHT! I COULDN’T RAISE MY ARMS!!!
