That being accomplished, the purple stuffed “love bug” that was caught on a fan blade then flew off and onto the floor. I didn’t ask any questions.

About a half an hour later, I noticed the bedroom light was on, but I knew my daughter wasn’t in there. I walked in to turn off the light and found this:

Her little accident led to the discovery of a new game! I just wish I had dusted off those fan blades first.
