Situation: A sick friend, Jamie Howell, is making a ruckus and being difficult because he’s “never sick”…
Mirelle leapt to the storage box and extracted a wad of clay. “To help Margaret, I’ll make a Howell pig to remind him (Jamie) of how difficult he is. […] I used to make little animals for the children when they were sickabed. I developed a series of beasties, usually with obnoxious expressions, and just gave them a hideous colors. Nick would be a blue mule when he wouldn’t take his medicine. Roman was a yellow ostrich. He always burrowed under the sheets to avoid a shot. […] The kids would play with then animals in bed, before I broke down and permitted TV in the house.”
“Are there any left?” Sylvia peered at the back of the storage shelves.
“No. They were just hardened clay and friable. In fact, the kids used to smash them in victory when they got well.”
