Friday evening was spent in the rather raucous company of young nieces. We are not used to baby-sitting. We had a studio sitting with costume changes. They took pictures of each other and self-portraits with the remote trigger. We all watched the first Pokémon movie, and then we introduced them to the original Game Boy game. They played hide the Minion and hide the Pikachu. One cat played like mad with the kids, while the other was nowhere to be seen. (The third cat was completely indifferent.) In the end, we survived, all of us.
