Me: Here she is, Miss Teacher of America!
Anne: Miss Substitute Teacher.
Me: First alternate?
I got up early this morning. Beating even Anne’s all to early iPhone chimes. After dropping her off at school, I headed over to the gardens. I correctly guessed that its walks would be cleared of snow. Everywhere else was still covered. While my camera was still warm, I first visited the Climatron. It didn’t fog at all in the moist tropical air. Afterwards, I swung through the Japanese garden. I practically had the whole place to myself. This burst of morning activity led to an afternoon nap.
