Iced jasmine tea, tan lines, farm animals, picnic blankets, frisbees, playgrounds, grilled hotdogs, walks to the store, ice cream, runny noses, blight-ridden tomatoes yanked, hopefully non-blight-ridden tomatoes planted, random acts of gardening, dog hair, smeary sunglasses, morning waffles, afternoon cookies, a thousand tantrums, a thousand pleasantries.

How about yours?

Still five, and still high from the sugar on that fairy cake. Was that even food? I see Nana gave you another loud, battery-powered plastic toy. Your birthday’s next, Mom. Revenge will be mine.
