We returned home on February 5th after being in Idaho for a few weeks. When we walked through the doors of our familiar house, we were greeted by some old friends, Routine and Normalcy. I had looked forward to seeing them again, but they looked different than I remembered--one of them must have either shaved his mustache or lost weight. When I got a little closer, I could see that one had actually grown a beard and the other gotten new glasses. And I exclaimed, "My, what changes you've made since December 1st!" And they returned, "The better to change you with!"
