Remember when we would read The Hobbit, and I told you Bilbo could be a girl, you got as excited as a squirrel, ran ‘round the house ‘til I told you, “stop it!” Such tears about this book being for boys because some princess girl teased you at play said only the guys had dragons to slay, bless me, I never heard such a noise. You walked with wild things o’er some tea party, fought orcs, slayed spiders, riddled with Gollum, all from bedtime words from me you call Mom, such a grand adventure we had started down the road of all our sweet yesterdays where missing you seems to drift far away.
