My daughter Caroline recently informed us she was adopted. Apparently she used to live with her “First Family” until they were “killed and eaten by a deer”. Now, she’s announced, she “has to live with us”. I think she’s mostly okay with this fate, although occasionally we’ll be going somewhere and she’ll comment nostalgically “Yeah, I used to go there with my First Family.” It seems she and the First Family had a heck of a time together.
Poor Caroline. Those nasty, killer, family-eating deer — I guess I’ll have to spend the rest of my life trying to make it up to her.
