It was grandparents-or-special-friends day, and The Maw wanted me to come, so I did. She was very cuddly. So were a bunch of other kids who didn't have guests (we were supposed to share). I got to meet The Maw's friend who has the same name as a childrens' book character and was just as pugnacious; I can see why they both get along and why they fight a lot.
The Maw didn't want me to leave after the event was over. I didn't want to leave, either, but alas I had to return to dayjob.
Two and a half days until my vacation.
