Shockingly, the girl was a full and willing participant in today's walk in Ass Forest. As long as she got to go first, that is...
We mostly stuck to deer paths, which meant that we were alone during our walk, which for me is always a good thing. (Dogs jumping on and/or running at the girl full tilt! People talking loudly on their phones WHILE WALKING IN THE FOREST!)
The strangest part of the whole experience was when the girl announced that we were leaving 'stickland' for 'World War Two.' We looked at her and then at each other, unsure if she had any sense of what WW2 was or what it might look like...
Then M tripped over a bare but fully articulated deer spine. And Aa fell down and cut her hand on a branch.
She looked up at us and said, "See, I told you it was World War Two!"
