a pretty blue dress // damsel in distress

My mother remarked she looked as if she'd seen a bear.  
Interesting. I thoughtfully stared at this picture and imagined that Caroline really did see a bear. And wouldn't it be such a romantic picture - that she was saved by a heroic cub-scout who led her to the safety of a tree? (Which, by the way, is not very safe regarding mad bears - just ask my grandpa.) 

Do not let his face of gallantry deceive you, neither let the damsel's terrorized features disarm you. I promise you, there were no bears, only a heated argument about who could climb the tree first. There goes any idea of romantic, fairy-tale photoshoots.

 All in all, Daniel's a pretty good kid. Even if he doesn't save his sister from imaginary bears.
