“I mean, holidays make memories but this is ridiculous!”

She cringed. “Why do young people start their sentences with ‘I mean’?”

Stevie looked at his mom. “Are you kidding me? We’re knee deep in quicksand and all you’re worried about is my vocabulary?”

“Relax Stevie, this isn’t the movies. We won’t be getting sucked into an abyss any time soon. Now let’s get out of this area.”

“Mom?”

She slowly waded through the wet sand and worked her way back onto the path.

“Mom?”

“Darn, I lost my good runners. Are you coming, Stevie? Stevie? Where are you?”
