  • I was stalking our new house in the morning, again. As I had a bad, bad cold, didn't take the bike. I went to the bus stop closest to the new house. When I got on the bus, I saw that I had a missed phone call. From Folkes preschool. I called back. I turned out I forgot to wave. This was the third time. But the first time I had gotten so far that they couldn't call me back. It was a disaster, they told me.
