Love is...

Context:
I had prepared an "Amazing Race" style treasure hunt for my brother's 12th birthday last Monday. I got them to count beans, shoot hoops, perform 'road blocks' and 'detours,' crack codes and eat food as part of the various challenges. One of the clues was from the ever popular nursery rhyme,

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall,
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.
What is Humpty Dumpty?

You know you love someone when he shouts out, "Humpty Dumpty is a basketball!!!" and rushes off in the wrong direction with all the other teams following suit, leaving me to quickly intervene to prevent a catastrophe.

N.B: In case you didn't know, Humpty Dumpty is an egg and the clue was in the kitchen.
