Wage really enjoyed the family reunion, even though he sometimes forgot who he was in the sea of familiar faces. A photographer got a shot of him with two of his favorite cousins.
All too soon, the out-of-staters had to leave and make their way home. Boy, you should’ve seen that one cab crammed full of Wages on its way to LAX! I told them they didn’t all have to share a single cab, but they insisted. Because they’re frugal that way. They work hard for their money.
Once his family had boarded the plane, Wage broke down. There were heaving sobs involved, but Green Wage was there to take care of him. He’s a great comforter.
