The Quiet Contest

The rules were straightforward.  "Who can stay quiet the longest?"

The prize was reasonable.  Five dollars and the thrill of victory.

We shook on the bet, making the contest legally binding.

I stared at him.  He stuck his tongue out.  I laughed.  He won.

Anything is possible in this world when a 28 year-old man can lose a Quiet Contest to his 3 year-old son.
