Mama finishes gluing together the toy. For the second time in the last few minutes.
"I'm getting in the shower. Don't touch the toys. Don't touch them, don't move them, (half teasing) don't even look at them... check?"
I hear Trevelyn talking in the other room, but I'm not really listening. "Force" I hear, and "contact"... "Right, Mom?"
"I don't know know, I wasn't listening. I just know that if you look at them you will be tempted to touch them."
"That's what I said. I said 'Not to make eye contact because that will force the participant by the emotions to make physical contact.' Only I was more scientific about it."
