Dear Daniel, at 71 I am finally expecting my first grandchild. (No one knows why.) Recently I was admonished to bring a book to the baby shower for this child. I knew immediately what book I would bring altho I have not read it in nearly three decades. Thank you soooo much for The Big Orange Splot!

Daniel replies:

Hard to believe no one knows why--maybe it's just you. You are expecting your first grandchild because a child of yours is expecting a child. (I took an Anthropology course in college, and there was a section on kinship.) Anyway, your choice of The Big Orange Splot as a baby shower gift honors me. Congratulations, grandparent!
