". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Adding Compliment to Injury

Caitlin told me today that on occasion when Evan has been angry at her he has yelled, "Caitlin, you do not make a good mother!"

I think it says something rather wonderful about them and their relationship that this is the worst insult that he can come up with to hurl at his sister.

(And for the record, Evan is very wrong. God willing, she is going to make a great mother some day.)
