My daughter, Alison, graduates college in two weeks. Here are two pictures from her first day of school in 1990. She reached school wounded but ready to work (see the band-aid above her right sock).
Getting off to an excellent start, Alison threatened to punch Miss Figaro, the teacher, in the nose as soon as Michele and I left the nursery classroom. After settling down, Alison encouraged her new friend, Erika, to hug her pet duck, Hector. Erika declined, and Alison offered to punch Erika in the nose.
