I'm missed.

First, there was this in my e-mail inbox yesterday:

HI uncle Chris (typed by Robbie)

So my sister-in-law Cindy was checking her e-mail and Robbie was there and she told him that I had sent her an e-mail and he wanted to say hi to me. And, so, I replied:

Keen!
Chris


...then there was this in my e-mail inbox this morning:

I miss you
from robbie (typed by Robbie)


*touches fingers to lips; blinks; looks away from the screen for a moment*

I replied as best I could:

I miss you, too, Robbie.

I'm looking forward to seeing you and your family again sometime.

Chris


Robbie's a sweet kid. Eric's a sweet kid, but in a more playful, toy-with-you way; Robbie's much more direct in his affection. He was my buddy during my vacation.

So when will we hang out again?
