Over the last week, we've experienced a new addition to our little household. Lindsay and I, having been a couple for several years now, have greeted the new arrival with joy as well as with all the hesitancy that accompanies these forays into the unknown.
A couple days ago, Lindsay was chilling on the futon when all of a sudden she started laughing out loud. I looked up from the kitchen, where I was puttering industriously (cooking dinner and washing the dishes, as I recall), and she called me over, pointing in excitement.
"Look at him! It looks like he's studying the painting, just staring at it quietly. He's just sitting there, appreciating it!"
And indeed, so it appeared.
Maybe it's time for us to have children.
