I noticed Adrian’s fingers in yesterday’s photo. Dirty, uneven fingernails, ragged cuticles. Ingrid’s fingers look only a little bit better. My own cuticles are not very pretty either.

None of us pay much attention to our hands. I make them wash their hands before meals (and after meals as well since Adrian somehow always ends up with his hands in his food) and cut their fingernails when I notice them reaching monster claw size. Ingrid picks at the skin at her fingertips, and often tears away ragged nail edges instead of clipping them – out of pure laziness as far as I can tell. Adrian doesn’t seem to notice his fingers at all, ever.
