Getting ready for school this morning

As is often the case, Elegant was slow to get ready this morning. Everyone was standing by the door, ready to leave, and she was still figuring out which shoes to wear.

I said, "I guess we're just going to have to leave without Elegant."

Pete, "Oh but it just wouldn't be the same without her."

Graceful, "Yeah, it would be a lot less whiny."


It was cold and in the 20s when we walked to school. Elegant typically doesn't have a lot to say on cold days and instead sinks deep within her coat and hood.

We were about to cross a road, so I asked her to check that it was safe to go. Without looking or even moving her eyeballs, she muttered from inside her coat, "Yeah, it's safe."
