I got something really neat today.  It’s a good thing too, because I was just about to pull my hair out, which would have been painful and time consuming – totally out of character for me.  I prefer to be self-depreciating and emotionally withdrawn.

Nabby in her prime.

I will call you Nabby, after the Chamorro word Na’bubu.  I will hug you and squeeze you and love you.  That’s not entirely true, I will mostly squeeze you and slam you and fling you across the room.  When you’re tattered and worn, like the Velveteen Rabbit, I will not dismember you and set you fire because that’s not what happened to the Velveteen Rabbit and it should never happen to you.

How can any grown person stay angry when yelling, “Golly, golly, golly?”
