Can you believe the girls actually have a relative who had the family rule
that anyone reading could not be disturbed for any reason?  Lovely idea and
all, but only if one is the reader.  I suppose in our case it wouldn't
matter that my children would never do their homework, brush their teeth or
put their dirty clothes in the hamper, as I would never get them to school,
take them to the dentist, or wash the clothes anyway!  It's a pleasant way
to have Life grind to a halt though.
