Baby was tiring of Aristotle.
“I want Mark Twain!”
To her credit, she actually did say this. She probably just likes this book because it is small and hard-backed and looks more important than her baby books.
We told her it was the “Mark Twain” book, she didn’t actually read the title. She’s two. Just clarifying. Here are some excerpts from this little book of Twain quotes:
“It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.”
“Classic: A book which people praise and don’t read.”
“War talk by men who have been in a war is always interesting; whereas moon talk by a poet who has not been in the moon is likely to be dull.”
This is why I write poems about things like linoleum.
“Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.”
So what does that make kohlrabi?
We had our first snow last night, it was a very light dusting, but I hope it is a sign of a snowy winter to come so we can build lots of snow sculptures! The bright clear cold light of today made for photos that put yesterday’s gray-day shots to shame!
