9 Chickweed Lane by Brooke McEldowney for October 25, 2006
"I was wondering if you'd like to join me on my rounds sometime...see what a former student has done with herself. How about Tuesday at six?" "Six A.M.? I don't really..." "It'll just be me and Sven." "...Sven? Tiny hips, huge shoulders? He used to clean my gutters." "Yes, well, he's a veterinary technician these days...He does 'technical' things for me, like carry whole bulls." "I'll be there at six sharp."
