Well, yours truly is enjoying a well-earned vacation from Cow Hampshire. I reviewed my notes, and this week is the first time since July I’ve had more than 2 days off in a row — and that was the week I had stomach flu. I NEED this.
I’m staying with my best friend and his family, and it’s very educational. He has a 7-year-old stepdaughter (although neither of them are overly fond of the “step” term) who has reached that interesting stage where she is very curious about bodies and wants to know exactly what is supposed to do what. So far he’s managed to deal with it exactly as one would hope: he distracts her with ice cream.
He calls it the “Haagen Dodge.”
It’s gonna be a fun couple of days here just outside Baltimore…
