He’s getting ready for the show...

Taking the week off for Phish shows.
The kids are experiencing a right of passage: a summer week with cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. They are swimming and eating hot dogs and macaroni and cheese.
We are listening to NPR and dropping swear words at need without shame.
We are sleeping late and eating late.
We are paying the teenager next door to water our tomatoes
and missing morning giggles and kisses and the ruffling of blond hair.
