I spend a lot of time cooking, while Ben spends a lot of time bike-repairing. Sophie has just invented a way to combine those two hobbies. She stands near Ben’s bicycle, pretending it’s a kitchen. She pretends to pour us tea or juice or mac-and-cheese from the various faucets of the handlebar, crank-shaft, and brake-pads. This is an especially great game when it’s a rainy day out, so we aren’t going out anyway, and I have a novel to read, lounging on the bed next to Ben’s bicycle, waiting for more pretend-strawberries extracted from the wheel’s quick-release lever.
