I knew an old lady who swallowed a fly...

...and what a great song to sing to your four-year-old who has been having some issues with being afraid of bugs and also who has been asking a lot of questions about death and dying. Way to go, Liss.

I don't know why she swallowed that fly. Perhaps she'll die.

"Why, Mom? Why would she die? Is she dead in that picture? Would you really die if you ate a spider, Mom? What happens when you die? What if I swallow a bug, Mom? Will I die?"

Short blog post 'cause there's crazy stormishness coming through, and I don't want to lose this old computer, since I found out today that my beautiful new laptop is not going to ship until June 23. Sadness.

Just one quick question before I shut this thing down for a bit:

Why is it that I can never find the scotch tape when I really need it, but both children can find it anytime they feel the urge to pull about four feet of tape off a spool and stick it to, say, several pages of our photo album?

I think a child's nose can smell the adhesive on the tape.
