A ‘Silly’ Moment

En Route: Xenia, Nicolas and Josh On an Xtracycle

JAKARTA, Indonesia — As my time in the city draws to a close, I’m trying to recall other high points of my stay.

One happened a couple of days ago.

Nicolas, Josh’s adorable 3-year-old son, and I engaged in a game of “YOU are.” He had been bouncing on the living room couch, when his grandmother joked, “Are you a jumping monkey?”

Seizing the moment, I repeated the moniker, thus prompting the back-and-forth exercise.

When we got back from the zoo, I told him about the gorillas, orangutans and an assortment of jumping monkeys. Naturally, that led to another game of “YOU are.”

Later on the couch, Nic leans over with a broad smile and whispers in his dad’s ear, “Your friend is silly.”
