Hu-Dad thinks he deserves snacks while he is working in the study, but doesn’t want to share, so he tries to put the chips away.
Hu-Dad spends his days hunched over a laptop typing away at his busyness. We spend our days sprawled in the floor around his desk listening to his incessant pounding on the keyboard.
