  • Very early to rise, early to bed

    La Serpiente woke up at four this morning, screaming the house down because she didn’t have her big white bunny rabbit. Eventually, my exasperated wife located this cuddly toy, but by then Destroyer had been woken up. Or rather, we heard weeping from her room. We opened the door to check: silence. We closed the […]
