new yorker butterfly saturday

saturday. in the garden: butterflies. and me. reading Lorrie Moore's short story "Childcare". which is featured in The New Yorker. and actually is an excerpt of her upcoming new novel, "Gate at the Stairs". so now i know a book to wish for in September.

here is some of it:

“Well,” Sarah said as we both got into her car. “That was, for all intents and purposes, a complete disaster.” She started up the engine. “You know?” she continued. “I always do the wrong thing. I do the wrong thing so much that the times I actually do the right thing stand out so brightly in my memory that I forget I always do the wrong thing.”

and here, the story link: Childcare, and more about Lorrie Moore.
