This Day So Far


Mouse to me: Mom, you have to read this book (Ed: Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell) I just finished. You will love it. It’s full of doomed romance!

Me: What about my life choices is it that suggests I love doomed romance?

Mouse: It’s just the kind of thing I think you like.


(Somewhere between the car wash in Columbia and the parking garage at work in Washington, the wheel-well liner of my car attached itself to my front tire and the front bumper began to tear. Happily, my boss has a duct-tape auto body repair kit and has offered to help me reconnect these pieces so I can drive home without further damage. I wonder how long duct-tape auto body repair actually lasts.)
