I took another carload of goodies over to Hamilton today. Thanks to the Neudorf's and the lovely Melissa Burleigh, I have places to store all my stuff and somewhere to stay between the time I move out and when I can move into my new place. Such nice people. Next on my list: getting Zoe to be my friend again. Apparently, I spooked her on Wednesday with an overdose of sarcasm and jokes. When I was at the Neudorf's today, she spent the entire time lying face down in their recliner. I tried to mend things between us by using my gentle kid voice and reading her a book, but I think that probably made it worse. Perhaps I will try a different tactic next time by goading her with some candies. Maybe some skittles or cotton candy. If that doesn't work, I will have to resort to hypnosis or some shock therapy, but hopefully it won't have to come down to that. But mark my words: Zoe and I will be friends.
