Standard

To Gideon, dump trucks are the ne plus ultra, the superlative of superlatives, the symbol of all that is right and good in the world.

When I set a bowl of “soba doodles” with toasted sesame seeds in front of him, when I sing “You are my Sunshine” in a soft, sultry voice, when I lift my shirt to nurse him, he says, and I’m not kidding you when I quote, “This is a dump truck.”
