Already There Threefer #1LinerWeds

I spoke to our #4 Daughter, the amazing Sara Marian, and asked if she was still working. She was. Mostly from home, but also (she’s an archaeologist) on some digs. They drive to digs separately and take turns going in to the office and work from home on research.

They’re still doing digs, but they’re already separated by more than six feet on those. I was worried about hand/face contamination in the field.

She said,

“Mom, we already wear gloves and, considering that urban archaeology is mostly digging up outhouses, we never touch our faces!”

To which I replied,

There’s something to be said for working in filth.

And remember:

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about digging.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Smart girl. Some careers prepare you for the most unusual things. Who’d of thunk?

    Ha-ha! Maybe it’s too early here, but my mind read: “[C]onsidering that urban archaeology is mostly digging up outhouses, we never touch our feces!”

      Incorrect reading, correct procedure. They only touch other people’s.
