Power Moves

Carlo was in the fifth grade spelling bee today. Full auditorium with several hundred people watching him and the other kids on stage. At one point he got up and went to the bathroom. Three years of spelling bees and I’ve never seen that happen, but Carlo waltzed out and then back in like it was no big deal.

It was quite a power move, really. Signaling to his opponents that he planned on being there awhile. Respect.
