ON REFILING THE IDENTITY PAPERS

C (filling my plate at X-mas Eve dinner): Artichoke Heart, do you have a preference for what kind of meat you'd like?

S (blurting out with glee): No! She does NOT have a meat preference! (Laughs hysterically at her own joke).

C and E: (Shaking heads, making indignant noises).

Me: Ha ha ha. Very funny. Ha ha.

S (to Me): Are you actually blushing? I didn't know you did that.

E (to S): Don't make me come over there and hit you again.

And Peter, thank you SO much for the kind words about "Insect Postures." I'm delighted that you liked the poem!
