Speaking in (hash) tongues
On our way home from Cape Cod today, I decided to take a detour down to Woods Hole just to see a different coastline and to visit Nobska Lighthouse, which is really beautiful and authoritative, sitting on a solid shoulder of rocky, scrub-bushy land.
It was worth the little bit of extra time to me, but not to Jack, who was promised use of the iPad once we crossed the Bourne Bridge off the Cape. To show his displeasure, he spoke only in hashtags the entire way. Here’s a sampling.
Jack: Why are we doing thisss?? Hashtag Boredoutofmymind!
I want to go straight home!! Hashtag
