From April 2011, when Robert was 13 and Josiah was 8...
Josiah [who spent much of April discussing plans for a garden that never really happened because he found out he wasn't as good at digging through our Georgia clay as he imagined]: I'm very interested in plants--
Robert [interrupting]: Josiah wants to be an old lady when he grows up.
Josiah [continuing his monologue, completely undeterred by his brother's attempt to discourage him]: Well, without plants we wouldn't have football. We'd just have mud, and that's not as much fun.
Robert: Yes, thanks to pickles, we have football.
