Everybody is asking what I got N for his birthday. It was a huge geode kit. Obviously, he’s not the person who will be playing with it. Klara will play, giving N a chance to enjoy some peace and quiet.
I was going to deploy the geode kit myself but “there’s no greater love” than when you sacrifice a great time-consuming activity for somebody else during lockup.
I also introduced N to Chris Arnade’s book.
“It’s a great book!” N enthused. “What I don’t get, though, is who was with his kids while he was doing all of this.”
