I hate killing spiders when I’m vacuuming. I never do it intentionally, but there are so many, and so many webs. When I go into a cleaning rage there can be casualties. If I see one get sucked into the tube I apologize.
Isabelle said once, when she was young: “I like cows, but I like eating them too.” Now she doesn’t eat them.
There’s a guy who’s been parking in front of our house every day. Don’t know where he lives. I warned him about the falling pinecones that the squirrels knock out of the trees. Two cars have had their windshields broken. He stared at me with an odd grin, then, as soon as I stopped talking, he asked: “How do you stay so fit?”
