Daytime at Panera's by Andrew Rihn

“Did you just stick your fingers in cream cheese, you little munchkin?”
“It’s squishy,” the boy says.
The mother laughs a bit, pleased. She gets more napkins. The boy reaches for his glass, spills it.
“Shit!” he exclaims.
The mother spins around, cheeks reddening. People nearby smirk at each other.
