"you know, baby," she said as they walked to their cars,
"i think i figured out why yesterday was a no good downright poopy day."
"why?" he asked.
"because i inadvertently left henry at home!" she replied,
quickly pulling her tiny owl talisman from her coat pocket.
"baby! i love the fact that you keep a little owl with you all day,"
he said with a chuckle. "it's so cute!"
"between you and me, i really don't think he minds
'cuz he can catch up on his z's and he only sends out a "hoot"
when i forget to let him out at night so he can stretch his wings."
