#020 kevin the cassowary

"Kevin is a stay at home dad with a very full nest. Every day his wife goes out to work to do whatever it is she does (something important, something boring – he forgets), and he begins the endless homework, school run and laundry routine. Ensuring that everyone has a polished casque before leaving the house is a task in itself, but thankfully he’s coached them to sprint the school run in under ten minutes so they are very rarely late. When your feet are as big as a cassowary’s, four sets of muddy footprints becomes a day-long undertaking to clear up, not to mention ironing all the long socks, shorts and shirts of their incredibly sporty brood." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
