I washed the dinner dishes tonight while listening to the children regale their father with urgent announcements.
K was away for three days and they both had a tremendous amount to say.
Somehow they stumbled on the subject of dolphins and were reminiscing about having once sighted a lone dolphin.
This triggered another most urgent announcement from The Rooster.
"Dad!" she shouted with excitement, "when we were at the beach Marion showed us a whole SCHOOL of dolphins!"Because she emphasized the word school, I imagined her wonder at seeing not just one, but a whole group of dolphins.
The Rooster continued,
"They were swimming in a line out in the ocean but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't tell which one was the teacher."Oh, my sweet girl.
