“The keys are in Pops’ leg”
Teddy headed to the back room to begin searching for the keys. His brief altercation with his brother made him momentarily forget about the box on the kitchen table. Teddy was surprised to see Joey sitting on the bed, legs crossed, hands folded, just doing nothing. “Oh hey, Joey. What’s going on? You okay? Why are you back here all by
Joey looked sheepishly at his big brother. It was if he had done something wrong, but he hadn’t. Teddy simply said, “Can you help me look for Pops’ keys. They’re around here somewhere. We have to get the mail.”
Without hesitating, Joey said, “They’re in Pops’ leg.”
Teddy froze right where he was. He looked at little Joey wondering if he really heard what he thought he heard. “What? What did you say, Joey?”
“The keys are in Pops’ leg. He put them in there when he went to the hospital.”
“Joanie, get back here. Hurry up.”
Joanie ran back to the room. “What? What’s wrong?”
“Okay, get this. Joey just told me that the keys are in Pops’ leg. This is getting weird. First the insurance, now this.”
“C’mon Teddy, how could they be in his leg? That’s crazy.”
Joey got up on his knees and yelled at his sister, “It’s not crazy. Pops told me, and Pops isn’t crazy. You shouldn’t say that Joanie. That’s a bad thing to say.” Then he started crying.
“Oh my God, Joey, I didn’t mean…okay, okay, stop crying. Just tell us when you talked to Pops?”
