It's family prayer time...the part where we all go around and state our specific intentions.
Tony says: "And I pray for mommy's cancer...."
There is silence, as the kids process this. Then come some smiles and suppressed giggles.
Tony is looking proud of himself for remembering me in his intentions.
Finally, Jay says: "You mean, that the cancer does BADLY, right? You're not rooting for the cancer, are you?"
Tony, burying his head under the covers, just nods. Everyone is relieved.
