Highly Illogical Behaviour - John Corey Whaley

When he was ten he learned that if he held a plastic cup against his bedroom wall, he could hear everything his parents were saying in their bedroom. The last time he listened was when his mom asked his dad if they were going to be "stuck with him forever." After she said it, he didn't hear anything for a while. Then he realized it was because she'd started crying as soon as the words left her mouth. Hours later, Solomon was still awake wondering how to answer his mother's question. He eventually decided on a hard yes.
