"You're keeping them?" Stephen asks.
I bump my shoulders up and down at him, "I guess. Tomorrow I'll try just microwaving them. That usually makes them kind of floppy, so maybe floppy and tough will cancel each other out."
"You're right," he says. "The microwave will revivify them."
Revivify. That's the word he uses. Who uses the word revivify about French fries? Come to think about it, I don't know whether I've ever heard that word said out loud.
I throw my arms around him. He looks confused.
I explain, "I appreciate you."
