Muriel

“For me?”
“I’d like you to have it.”
It was a snapshot stolen from her family album: Muriel as a toddler, clambering out of a wading pool.
She meant, he supposed, to give him the best of her. And so she had. But the best of her was not that child’s Shirley Temple hairdo. It was her fierceness as she fought her way toward the camera with her chin set awry and her eyes bright slits of determination. He thanked her. He said he would keep it forever.

Tropical Bliss at Zulily (unavailable, their sales only last 3.14 seconds)
Why do I like Zulily? Cuz they stick to traditional styles (except for the clown suits) and the kids are just kids, not snotty millionaire brats.
And cuz I was going to try affiliate marketing with them but I’m too lazy. There, I said it.
