Feel Free To Tell Him If He’s Wrong

April 5, 2021

Well it wasn’t easy, but my son and I put in our overtime last week and wrapped up our course on the Roman Empire.

As I implied most recently yesterday, the stress level due to illness in this household is . . . high right now.  When people don’t feel well they tend to be less pleasant to be around, and there are lots of different ways different people deal with that situation.

It is made from mice,
Who are fed a diet . . . exclusively of rice.
They’re inspected daily to ensure they’re free of lice.
The tzatziki’s nice!
