It was morning, and the boys and I had just finished reading back-to-back Curious George stories when Delilah, our cat, came in.
In 2005, my parents invited my husband and me for a weekend in the cabins at Kalaloch Lodge on the coast. Being that my father was a very frugal man and could not fathom paying the steep summer rates, we went during February – the off-season, when it is typically gray and wet.
On any given day I may encounter pirates searching for treasure, waiters serving fly pie soup, or woodland trolls with rotting teeth and an insatiable hunger for goldfish crackers. I take out the trash only to return to a houseful of screeching, flapping pterodactyls. Whoever said dinosaurs are extinct has never been to our house.
