B’s jet-setting, artistic Aunt SweetRickey traveled to France last summer (see the photos here) and brought back a lovely book called “The Secret Circus.” It’s about the mice of Paris, who are the only ones who know when and where to find the secret circus.
The story features adorable mice, a balloon, and lots of pictures of the Eiffel Tower. Also? A mouse lion-tamer.
Sweet (see what I did there?), sentimental auntie that she is, SweetRickey wrote a note inside:
I mean, clearly that is a picture of SweetRickey at the Eiffel Tower, and the logical conclusion is that she lives there. Duh. I have tried to explain that the Eiffel Tower is veryveryvery far away, in Paris, whereas SweetRickey only lives veryvery far away, on the other side of the country from Exile. We have been to her house. It is not the Eiffel Tower.
But what do I know?
(Pssst!! SweetRickey lives in the middle part. I have it on excellent authority.)
