As you know, my niece Rye Bread came to stay with me last weekend for our own little birthday celebration. During that time we talked a lot about Lancelot and Sophie and Zoe. Lancelot was my puppy and Sophie and Zoe were my cats. I haven't had Lance for a few years now and the cats have been gone for a while too...
Yet Rye Bread always says she misses them and asks why I had to put them up for adoption. She loves animals so it doesn't surprise me, but I find it funny that she's so fixated on these pets that I haven't had for a long time.
Tonight when I came home I had mail from my sister. Inside were pictures of Rye Bread in this years dance costume and a thank you note written by my niece. On the other side of the thank you note she wrote this:
My silly Rye Bread. Reason number 483920984832819703 why she's the greatest little girl ever.
