Once upon a time, I made a mistake. Ellie was teething, and I didn’t have a teething ring, so I let her chew the bottom of a Diet Dr. Pepper can. It helped in the short term, but it inspired her with a [metaphorical] thirst. She loves the cans, their cold, shiny surfaces. And she wants them. Unfortunately, once I have started using them, they have a nasty, sharp edge.
But that doesn’t stop her from trying.
