the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Family colors

I’m still in the process of organizing all the crap I have on my main hard drive and found this portrait of I took of Marlo a few minutes before we entered the festivities up at Snowbird last month. I don’t remember exactly what I was wearing, but if this picture is any indication all three of us are drawn to a very specific color.

Last night I pulled out a new toothbrush for Marlo, the green one I brought home from my dentist.

“UGH!” she groaned and shoved it away from her.

“Let me guess—”

“You know I don’t like green, Mom.”

“Well I know you like pink and purple—”

“I love ALL OF THE COLORS. Except green and black. I don’t like those.”

I ordered her a black toothbrush this morning.
