Marlon came over yesterday, patted Bellyboo,
asked for paper and pen, and proceeded to interview me about post-Belly life.
Who’s going to stay here? Will you have a yaya? What do we have to work with?

My favorite MNRisms
from yesterday’s life-repurposing session
“If there is a place for
everything, then nothing will be out of place.”
“There’s nothing wrong with
accumulating things. You just have to build a place for them.”
“I told her, don’t put anything
on those empty shelves. Those shelves are the FUTURE.”

ninong/guardian angel/decorating diva for Belly. AND he owns a Nikon
