This spider awaiting me on my back porch perfectly represents how I feel, only I think the body part I'm missing would best be described as "brain matter", because my coffee ran out at 9 AM, and I've been decidedly dim ever since. Around 11 AM, l.c. texted to demand I post "a synopsis of picture day". Really? You want a synopsis? OK, fine.
synopsis: I'm taller than sixth graders but shorter than eighth graders. That's right -- I'm a seventh grader for eternity, apparently, which explains why I'm still waiting for my skin to "clear up".
