If you know Atticus then you know Mickey Mouse. He carries the doll with him everywhere. Mickey was filthy, like people in the grocery store would comment on him, friendly enough, filthy. Today I managed to talk Atticus in letting the mouse bathe.
The water was dirtier than a mud puddle on a dirt road.
Well, Mickey seems to have made it through okay, and is currently drying. No need to send flowers.
