>Mercy: “Mom, when can you go out with us and play in the snow?”

Me: “How about February first.”

Mercy: “But that’s six weeks away!” [The child is a walking chronograph.]

Me: “Umhm.”

Mercy: “You mean you’re not done writing that book yet?”

Me: “Umhm.”

Mercy: “But haven’t you written it –like seventeen times already?!”

Me: “At least.”

Two days’ worth of fact-checking, waiting to be reshelved.
