details, details

I’m thinking that the reason I can’t come up with, um, uh…..oh yeah - words, and the reason I… what was I going to say? Oh, right, the reason I forget things is this:

I know the names of all of these tiny plastic animals that live in our tub.

They are:
front row: Tallhead
second row: Lizardy, Blackeyedfrog, Longlegs
last row: Greenyfish, Amanda, Joseph, Isabella, Bella, Gola, and HeHe (“because he’s a he”)

Why I have this capacity for the names of brightly colored plastic fish, reptiles and amphibians, I don’t know. I guess because it’s important to him, and it’s a way to connect. I guess that’s why.

Still, I wish I could remember a few grown up things too.

Bella is a slightly darker shade of purple than Gola. Also, her eyes are slightly more buggy.
That's how.
