Today, he took two bad hits. First, Nara closed the beach due to e. coli. See, _this_ is why we don't feed the geese, why we chase them away, why we mess with their eggs and, in a pinch, start killing them. Take one look at their reproductive pattern and life expectancy and you can see the issues (really, it is amazing they ever got close to extinction).
Second, we had the driveway sealcoated, which is basically repairing and adding another layer of petro-whatsis to it. You can't walk on it, much less drive on it, so we parked the cars on the side street. T. is very Particular about the cars being put away and the status of the garage doors and so forth and This Was Wrong. *sigh*
R. and T. sat in the garage for probably an hour (inhaling fumes) assimilating the change and discussing when it would go back to normal, and going in circles.
Other than that, it was a fun day. A. got a Daisy Duck to go with her Minnie and T.'s Mickey (these are the big plush ones), which means, predictably, that today she requested a Donald. I'm betting by the end of next week, I'll be receiving demands for Pluto and Goofy. She is currently asleep underneath Minnie and Daisy. I was pleased to hear the duck and mouse chatting in the back seat on the way home from the pool this afternoon.
