Stumptown again.

Two little boys sitting at a table waiting for their dad to get coffee, the older one maybe six, with control of the hand-held video game. The littler brother might be four, avidly watching the screen of the game, but it's held out of his reach.

The older brother makes sound effects: "Reeeeeeee--chow!" Then he announces, "Delicioso!"

The little brother echoes him: "Delicioso!"

Older brother continues playing.

Little brother pinches his ear.

Older brother disregards, keeps playing.

They get up and wait in line with their parents, older brother's eyes still on the game, little brother distracted.
