The two year old just loves the kitty too much to NOT play with her

Word picture for the morning:

The cat, trying to take a nap on the computer chair. The toddler, a grin splitting her face, whirling the chair in circles as hard as she can (which isn't very), crying "Spin! Spin!"

I hadn't known that cats could look horrified . . .

Just killing time

One of the worst things I've ever written was a sestina about Minesweeper. It was truly dreadful. But I was desperate--and the class only required an attempt at a poem each week, and sestina week was giving me fits. I wish I'd had this then.
