Tyrone and I ran around in diapers together at Happy Kids daycare. There's a photo of the two of us and Tyrone's mom on the first day of kindergarten, on the school steps. Tyrone has a brand new Transformers knapsack; I have a Dora the Explorer lunchbox. He's holding his mom's hand and looking up at her, but she's got her head turned the other way. She's looking down the street as if something big and important has her attention - maybe a three-car pile-up or a good-looking guy.
