“Hey Mom, could I have this copy of the Woodinville Weekly?”
My son, (whom I’ll call Slash for the purpose of respecting his requested privacy), lived at home during some of the years I wrote for our community newspaper in Woodinville, Washington.
He had never before asked to keep any of the copies of the newspaper, and I felt pleased he wanted to have a copy to treasure. I wondered what articles in the paper I had written that prompted his desire to save it.
Pondering this further, I decided to go ask which of my articles did he like so much.
