Emily believes I have frightened too many people,
with her STEM project on arsenic.
and should write a short paragraph on
arsenic as a naturally occurring element.
Excellent, I said. Give it to me in Word and
you can make minds rest easy.
Over the weekend Emily also decided it was time
to send the golden locks to a new home.
And so she did.
I mailed her pony tail to Locks of Love
when I went back to work yesterday.
