Teri: What is up?
Lauren: Nothing. It’s day 3.
Teri: Day 3, the natives have started to get restless?
Me: That was actually Day 2.
Teri: Day 3, the natives have organized.
Me: Day 2, the natives were made to clean. Day 3, we went to Barnes and Noble. Having just returned, 2 of the 3 are fighting. BTW, why does Barnes and Noble have a toy section? It’s a BOOK STORE. Do they hate parents?
Teri: The chief is scared.
Me: Out of my mind.
Three days down, 74 to go.
