The boys are playing Super Mario:
Joel: Get out of your bubble.
Micah: I want to be in my bubble.
Joel: You don’t do anything when you’re in your bubble.
Micah: You’re safe in the bubble.
Joel: But you never do anything. I’d rather die than do nothing.
I sit on the couch wondering what kind of men they will someday be, hoping that both is listening well to the other, begging the Universe to let the hold both in that beautiful, constant paradox of freedom and safety.
