[as recorded by Catharine O’Neill, some months ago]
Clara: I’m glad we’re past the snake.
Timothy: What snake? I didn’t see a snake.
C: That black hose. It looks like a snake so I call it the snake hose.
T: Aah, yes.
C: I like you, Dad.
T: Oh, I like you too, Clara.
C: I think I’m going to like you all my life.
