Write about: spiders.
Had the boys in town this morning while Kat was with a counselling client. All I shall say about that is that summer is a much easier time to be in charge of the both of them. Well, I'll also add: I miss warmer days, when multiple layers were not required every time we stepped out the front door.
After lunch I brought Max back to the dentist for another cleaning. He did really well again. I think he surprised the hygienist with how easy going he was about everything.

"Goodness me, Archibald! Such magnificent coloring and markings! And so big, too!"
"Have you ever seen anything like them?"
"No, never! Perhaps we've discovered a previously unknown variety!"
"Wouldn't that just be so exciting, Reginald?"
"Oh, most definitely yes, Archibald! Why, look at this fellow here! Isn't he a large one?"
"My word! That might be the biggest spider I've ever seen! And doesn't he just look like he's watching you? Such intelligent eyes."
"Yes, yes! Watch how he tracks me as I move side to side. Fascinating, isn't.... aaaahhhhh!"
"Oooh, he's a jumper, Reginald! And a biter too, from the looks of it!"
"I'm sorry, what was that Reginald? Reginald? Really, Reginald... this is no time to be lying down on the job! Reginald...?"
