Perhaps There Will Be Something Left

Posted on 09 November 2009

I want to explain why I missed the brunch on Tuesday. My green pants of sin were drying on the clothesline and Cuddles was not at the shoe house. Laisy Daisy and Weed were flying your very best underwear kite, the one that flew like a bubbling guppy, and it got caught in a tree while Gramps was carving another lawn flamingo. I took it away from him, but the dog found it. I wanted to take it surfing.

Nothing doing. That’s what Gramps said and you know what? He was right. When he finished it, that flamingo had curves like Susie Detweiler. So I guess I missed the brunch for no good reason and I’m a little steamed, but most sinners never even notice.

Betty the Doll was here for dinner on Sunday. She wore an old bonnet. She called it a beret, but I knew it was a bonnet. She wanted to show me her picture holes. She said they were brilliant wounds and someday they would make her famous. I don’t think so, but maybe I should study it.

What kind of person do you think a scientist needs to be? My teacher says we must not get the idea that scientists will soon run out of problems to solve. My teacher says things to get our attention, like an invention that solves one problem may create many new problems. Doesn’t that mean more and more scientists will be needed until there aren’t any normal people left? Klondike says I have an “elusive” mind. He’s still going to Alaska, but not yet. Alaska must be more elusive than my mind is.

I dropped some things today. Sure enough, they all hit the ground at the same time. My book says a scientist is just a human being like anyone else. I don’t think so.

But I don’t want you to be angry with me.

Maybe we could teach researchers to sing together.

Maybe you could save me some leftovers.

I’m sorry you’re sorry I couldn’t make it, but sing anyway, okay?
