How Many Licks Does It Take?


Long, long ago, for a child first born….

[Mike] Oh crap, I dropped Amelia’s pacifier.
[Beth] No problem dear, put it on the rack to steralize and I’ll get a fresh one from its plastic case.

Fast forward to yesterday, for a child second born….

[Mike] Siena spit her pacifier out on the grocery store floor.
…fuzzy memories due to distractions of parenting…later in the car…
[Beth] Do you think three licks is enough?
[Mike] Huh?
[Beth] After she dropped it, I licked Siena’s pacifier three times before giving it back to her, do you think that’s enough?
