Anyhow, I’m about to tell you about how I used this same strategy when I became a violist and got to travel to Vienna with –

Mr. December is standing in the doorway to my workshop and pointing to the stairs. I sew another seam.

“BED.”

We’ve been trying to get to bed on time, but we’re both terrible at it. Tonight he’s being the bad cop. Sometimes I am, and sometimes –

“SARA!”

Um, I guess I’d better sign off now. Do you have a bedtime? Early or late? Is it easy or hard for you to discipline yourself to get to bed on time?
