I don’t know if it’s good or bad that I can do the NYT crossword puzzle on my iPhone when I can’t sleep. Last night I managed to doze off between 3:00 and 4:30 a.m. Then Cameron came into my room because his stuffy nose was keeping him up.

“Huh? We’re doing math? In the jungle? Why are we doing math in the jungle?”
Suddenly my brain woke up and engaged. “Oh, I get it, you get ATE. Funny stuff.”
