a memory

Iris and Lola love to reminisce about their toddlerhood, a magic time when there was no homework and no early mornings, just plenty of toys and their aged mother taking them to play with other children at their part-time preschools. Recently Iris unveiled an interesting memory.

"Once you came upstairs, and you said, 'Iris, I have good news for you,'" recalled Iris uber Alles. "I thought you got me a toucan for a pet! I was so excited! I thought I was going to go downstairs and see the toucan. Then you said, 'Uncle T. is here.'" Iris laughed heartily at her own heartfelt toddler disappointment.

"You honestly thought I'd bought you a toucan?" I asked curiously.

"Yes! Yes, I did."

I bet "Uncle T." will love knowing he's worth less than a toucan.
