This morning while the sun was coming through the kitchen window, the kid and I sat in two chairs with our backs warming in the sunlight. She thumbed Pikachu around a toodly Game Boy while I read Ahab back down to the bottom of the ocean. The cat lay on the sill in the direct light and eventually burst into flame. When the woman got up, there wasn�t enough sun left for her.

This afternoon, though, at her annual company picnic, there was more than enough sun for all. I sipped beer under a tree and watched people whirl around the grass and gobble politic sausage.
