Thought for the Day

The other morning, we were sitting at breakfast, and the topic somehow
got to diapers and what goes in them. (N.B.: In case you don't have
children, this is not all that unusual...Sorry.)

So I was explaining to Laura that, like the book says, "Everybody
Poops." In fact, I noted, warming to my subject, it's part of being
alive. Even plants poop!

Matt said, "Wow. Right now, we're *breathing* plant poop!"

So. Take a nice, deep breath. Feels good, doesn't it? [in the
background, swelling music becomes clearer; it's "Circle of Life" from
_The Lion King_ "It's the cirrrrcle....the circle of liiiiife."]
