1. “I think I liked it better when you were dead.”

2. The mud is watery, like thin soup, and bliss to walk through– but the stench clings to them for days and she wishes they were back in the sucking muds of home.

3. Knickknack collecting is an art-form. Her aunt has the eye for finding things that will look good on her cluttered shelves, even if they look horrendous in the store. The scary part is her shelves don’t really look cluttered, they just look full — as if they were built to hold those specific items, even though the collection ebbs and flows like the tide.

4. Second chances don’t come cheap, but she’s not buying them for herself anymore.

5. Children say what we can’t, unfettered by the politeness that tradition demands, so we use them as our interrogators.
