We all ate meatloaf together, Mummy, Ellen and I. Mum put it between two whole wheat Arnold bread slices, which stank of preservative, so I declined, and ate my straight, as did Ellie.
We talked and watched while Mummy opened the mail.
She gave me the most recent Cleveland Jewish News cuz we're from Cleveland. She wanted me to read the cover story about Tay-Sachs disease, the horrible progressive genetic disease that usually kills Jewish children before the age of 5.
I had known it killed people othan the Jews cuz my neighbor Mary's late husband was a Tay-Sachs researcher. If you wanna read his scientific papers, google EE Grebner. Hiergyphix to me.
The CJN contains clear writing. I used to baby-sit for David Schonberg, now 51, who has late-onset Tay-Sachs. For the fascinating story, click here and scroll down to the second article.
Thank god Mummy liked the meat loaf. Didn't think it was undercooked. Of course, we ovened it for 20 minutes.
Ah, here comes the school bus. Time for me to work on Chapter Four. What music shall we put on?
