A playlet found in Archer's room this morning, written on the back of a used-up sticker sheet:
Jackie: Inez is sleeping
Inez: Who's waking me up?
Matt: It was us.
[Matt is unidentifiable symbol that looks like a flag bearing a tripod and the letters CMJ followed by a pencil]
Matt: Who is that?!
Jackie: Inez WAS sleeping!
Creech and Jewels: Stop that bad behavior, Hacker!
A conversation with Cady Gray tonight around bedtime:
Cady Gray: Mom, you can have one of these [little blank magnets from a Hangman game]. They're model sticks!
Mom: What are they?
CG: Model sticks. You can have one!
Mom: Thank you! What do they do?
CG: They don't do anything. They're model sticks!
