We now interrupt this discussion of aesthetics and superfluity
Enough high seriousness, we need a schmaltz break. How about a mawkish anecdote involving children?
This morning as I dressed, Kid #2 declared "It's a Purple Day" (for Kid #2, it is sometimes a Purple Day, but typically it is a Pink Day). I own precisely one purple shirt. I am wearing it in her honor.
Need some more? It is the time of the year for surfeiting on sweets, after all.
As we drove to her school this morning, Kid #2 (AKA "The Little Drama Queen") languidly declared, "I'm too tired to play in the sandbox." She glanced out the window with studied ennui, then continued "I am tired of the world."
