a new trick, on the eve of a new year

As I sat here in the comfy chair, focused on Quark and e-mail, Jacqui played with Geoff inside the baby-corral in front of me. He went into the kitchen for something, and she started complaining a little. I glanced up; she was standing against the plastic fence, calling for assistance.

Geoff came out of the kitchen: "I didn't stand her up right there."

"You DIDN'T?!"

"Nope ... I gotta call and tell my mom!"
