The kid chose all my presents. She must think I'm someone's old aunt. Or a little girl, like her. I got a ceramic owl with a heart on it, a little white ducky thing to hang on the wall, a good tea mug, and a hand-drawn card with two raining clouds, a big rainbow, and a sun over a yellow snake with red spots and a mouth full of big teeth sneaking up on a magpie with a pink head that is preoccupied with one of Van Gogh's early attempts at a cypress.

* And one card from abroad. A good one.
