Face, Books

Cathy says I make a face when I'm feeding Sofi solid food - as the spoon goes in her mouth my lips curl - it's a challenge, you know, trying to get as much food from the spoon to her mouth as possible: it doesn't surprise me I put some kind of gamer face on. I can't seem to stop it.

Sofi's got a new past-time, which is crawling over to the bookshelves and pulling all the books off the bottom shelf. She particularly likes to tear up this old Theodore Sturgeon book - I wouldn't mind, except it has the short story "Need" in it, one of the greatest short stories of all time. I've moved that one to a higher shelf. Sans cover. And sans the last ten pages or so. Still, "Need" is intact.

And, oh God, she's just so freaking cute! Is she really my daughter?

Remind me what "Need" was about?

It's about the guy who feels other people's needs.

I remember those days -- except the severely wounded book that was preserved anyway was a collection of Kafka's stories, featuring "Metamorphosis."

Within a few short months, The Boy went on to color every drawing of Cerebus the Aardvark in a full run of Cerebus black-and-white comics . . .
