There were nine in the beginning. Well, ten if you want to get technical, since one of them was actually two in one. So really, I'm a fibber. There still are nine. But there's one less today than there were yesterday. I could try to blame my son. After all, he pulled one out. Truth is, that one was dead before he set a finger on it. It hadn't given up the ghost, not entirely, but I had doubts it would ever see better days. There is a point of no return after all, and I, I am no miracle worker. Well, okay, not in this realm I'm not.
