Question to you technologically savvy folks (Pat, I know you can help me here): if this actually happens, I want to keep blogging. How can I do this? Assume that I can't take my laptop and have no ready access to electricity. Please don't tell me I have to text message from my cell phone.

My three-year-old female patient has a thing for boogers. Insert finger into nose, transfer to mouth, repeat. I could have set my watch to it.

"Aren't pretzels tastier than boogers?"
She shakes her head.
My logical train of thought just derailed.
OMIGOD. Karen just pointed me towards this post on Steve's blog. Get a load of the photo. Oh holy sheee-it. Karen's comment, "Oh, don't get so upset. He probably just ate a poodle." Yeah, that's my wife. Don't dare suggest, "He probably just munched a few spiders." Oh, no.
