Fireworks

Galit Atlas, Ph.D.

FIGURE 1  Pablo Picasso, “Sleeping Woman with Shutters,” 1936, oil on canvas (color figure available online).

When we got home, Mom was already in bed. She said she didn't feel well, and asked that we not bother her. Dad went into his study, and I opened the door to the bedroom and watched her sleeping. I got close and whispered in her ear, “Mom, can I sleep next to you?” She didn't answer, and I got in on Dad's side of the bed, covered myself with the blanket, and watched her. “Mom, we saw fireworks,” I whispered, and she opened an eye and smiled at me. “Good, I'm glad you had a good time,” and immediately shut her eyes again, before I had the chance to tell her that I actually did not have such a good time and that I don't like fireworks at all.
