Fourth child brought home a book from the school library yesterday. Lexie and I got to go to the bus stop to meet him after school. He bounded off the bus, unzipped his backpack right there on the sidewalk, and showed Mom a photo in the book of a mother kangaroo and her joey, lying down schnauzer-style next to her. You couldn't see the joey's face because he was facing away from the camera, so you had a shot from his tail up the back of his head to his ears. OMD! It looked just like me! There were a couple other kids at the bus stop as well, and they all laughed so hard. It really did look like me. At first I thought to myself, what am I doing in this book, and where is my royalty check? But then I stopped and thought about it for a while and realized I had never posed with a kangaroo! Are you crazy? I don't even know where to find a kangaroo, except for that thing they call a zoo that I don't want anything to do with, thank you very much. Mom says I'm not allowed anyway.
