This is where our 2-month-old sleeps. Because we can’t sell our house.
I’m thinking this will turn out well for her in later years, however. Besides the obvious character building she’ll get from staying in a closet for the first several months years of her life, I can see the following scenarios down the road, too:
Tween Party Host: Hey, let’s play ’60 seconds in the closet’! Who’s game?
Lola: I spent a large portion of my childhood in a closet. It’s not that great. Get lost, asshat.
Girl in Middle School: Did you hear? Lester came out of the closet last weekend! I don’t think we should let him sit with us at lunch any more.
Lola: I came out of the closet 10 years ago! It’s hardly a reason to shun a friend, Madam Judge-A-Lot.
Young School Bus Rider: I’m sort of a closet fan of the Twilight series. Squeeeee!
Lola: I wouldn’t characterize my fandom of anything as ‘closet,’ first of all. Neither should you. And second, why don’t you go buy a piece of intellectually stimulating non-fiction and, if you have enough cash left over, a clue!
See how I become Mr. Brightside?
