I guess "s" and "w" are kind of close on the keyboard

My mother dropped off a box of books that I used to read as a child.

"Aw," I thought. "Snow White."



I started to read it to Junior. He hasn't been exposed to Disney yet, so he has no idea his gender is responsible for awakening/rescuing/enabling helpless waif princesses. (Gawd, he's so behind.) Snow White was a great place to start.

Best,
