the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Centers of attention

This morning before school I was taking photos of the massive icicles hanging off the gutters at the back of the house when Marlo screeched, “MOM! Come take a picture of usth!”

Sure, they are both used to the camera being around, but rarely do they request that I take a photo of them. In fact, Marlo usually pretends that her face is melting off and tells me to STHOP THE CAMERA!

Leta quickly moved to her side by the fire and I shot of several photos of the two of them embracing. Marlo was jealous of the icicles. I have so much more leverage now.
