Laure's softie

I made a deal with Laure: help me with my website redesign and I'll make you a couple of softies.

So she did. And she made it the way I wanted: nothing fancy, just clean and to the point. She was a reliable designer, always available, ready to tweak and offer insightful comments, and she regularly checked in on me. So, when it was my turn, to make her softie, she gave me a drawing she did when she was four.
"What is it?" I asked.
"I actually don't remember," she said,"...maybe a hedgehog?"
"And what's that thing on its nose?"
"I don't know," she laughed, "you decide."
I worked on it, happily, because it was a happy creature. And because I had come to know and like Laure, I made the thing on its nose a friendship bracelet. And when I gave it to Laure, she was happy too...

Non, merci a toi Laure! You had talent when you were four, and you still have it, lots and lots of it.
