Quick obs on @KarlKGallagher's "The Lost War."
1. It's fantasy (magic/elves/orcs) and I generally don't like fantasy, but it's very good so I'll be reading the sequel. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
2. I could never go to one of these Medieval things. Too much overlap w/ Academe's bad side.😱😱😱
Children can handle pretty much anything. Warn them that Santa couldn't make as many toys this year because of covid. All the elves had to quarantine, whatever. Plan special activities with your kids. Events are powerful.
