On the day after Snowmageddon 2010 I was supposed to be helping Claudia clean her room. Instead I was taking pictures out of her bedroom window.
I was taking pictures of icicles when Ian walked in and said “Is that a bear?”
The kids thought I was taking pictures of the large mammal in our back yard that I hadn’t even noticed.
I yelled “Hey Gabe! There is a huge doe in our back yard!”
And that is when Claudia fed me the line. She said “What is a doe?”
I got to say – completely in context and with absolute accuracy – “A deer, a female deer.”
