"Janie, have your ears been plugged?" I snuff and cough into my elbow. She peddles her red bike.
"Oh, I didn't realize it was so bad. Now mine are totally plugged too. I should have been nicer to you guys."
She coasts a moment, "I bet God was just trying to say, 'Bethany, hmm, are you treating them the right way?'"
I catch her profile in the evening sun, "Huh. I was just thinking the SAME thing."
