security detail

Evan has had the same security blanket since he was less than a year old — a raggedy, baby-blue erstwhile comforter (most of its stuffing has fallen out) named "Meek." It's now too fragile to be laundered, and we have observed that the Meek is, indeed, inheriting the earth.

Different people use different dates to mark the start of summer — Memorial Day, the solstice, the last day of school. In our house, the first day of summer is the first day Evan asks us to put Meek in the freezer for a few minutes before he goes to bed.
