I was very open about my social media. "I have a lot of accounts. What do you want to know?"

"Pardon me for a moment." They turn away and bark out a cough-laugh, and when they turn back they are wiping a tear from their eye.

As we are leaving the building to return to our car, I hear them clearly say "I am going on a break now."

Oh man, I forgot to declare that one too. I did show them a couple I'm not telling you about because they are surprises. ;)
