Spanish Family

A smart-looking couple and their three sons on the subway, on their way to a family outing. The boys, visibly spread out in age, were dressed similarly, in powder blue polos and crisp, khaki shorts.

The youngest was sandwiched between the eldest and the middle. There was a constant struggle between them - the youngest wanted freedom, finding his brothers' embraces too restricting, but the other two each kept an arm draped around him. They also kept pressing kisses to the top of his head, but he evidently did not want to be kissed, because he howled furiously every time he was subjected to such indignity.

The mother only replied to every five cries of ¡Mamá, Mamá! - wise of her, since the "Are we there yet?" bug is apparently universal. Nonetheless, she obligingly counted the number of stops left at every station.

At long last (at least to the boys), they finally reached their destination. The family gets off the subway, amidst the youngest's impassioned screeches at his brothers that HE CAN WALK BY HIMSELF!!! HE DOESN'T NEED TO HAVE HIS HAND HELD!!!
