The other night wife, kiddo and I played a ferocious game of cards on the tiniest of tables while sitting on the couch.
After the fog of battle cleared, we began showing the little one how to stack cards into a house.
They kept falling. And it made us laugh.
Harder than we have laughed in a while.
That night at bedtime I pondered with my daughter why there wasn’t a word like “both” for three?
We decided “throth” would do.
