Charlie enjoyed an afternoon of swimming at our friend Shayne’s apartment building’s pool. (It might be important to mention here that Shayne is female.) After the dip, Mom, Dad, Shayne and Charlie enjoyed a picnic of sheeps’ milk cheese, salami, pretzel bread and guacamole with chips on her living room floor. Only Charlie seemed to be too enamored with Shayne to care much for food. “Can I pet you,” he asked. And so he did.
