(R was at the podiatrist when I got home)
J: I just got home and found this:
J: Is this how you take care of our children? One ripping down street signs and the other with a blood infection?
J: Attempting repairs:
R: Been there. Done that. He did it two days ago, too.
R: In the waiting room:
R; F: “I yike dese comics, Dad.”
J: Hey! My flowers are dead!
R: What?! They weren’t yesterday!
R: Are you exaggerating?
R: Um, speaking of dead, you might want to feed that fish.
J: The flowers look pretty bad. The rest of the house looks pretty incredible, so I forgive you.
