Pirates on the Nightstand
June 1, 2010
I was crawling into bed last night and picked up one of the books on my bedside table. I usually manage to read 2 or 3 pages every night before I drop the book on my face.
Underneath, there was a little rubber finger puppet of a pirate, left, no doubt, by Captain Scooby.
I began wondering at what point in my life I would no longer find pirates on the nightstand, Matchbox in my kitchen drawers and Goldfish in the glove compartment.
It will be a sad, sad day when that happens.
