Across the sky,
the world it learns…
So must I.
My sister provides me endless entertainment…
Whether we’re just having a conversation:
K: (pointing to small shelves) Did you see my new shelves?
M: Yes. What are you going to put on them?
K: Oh, you should know.
K: I could only fit one book on a shelf.
M: Oh, right. Soap?
K: Yes. I have shelves to keep my soap on.
M: Your cell phone? Or pictures of me?
K: (points across the room) What’s in that box?
M: Oh. Shotglasses. Well, I think it would look better with pictures of me and soap.
Or playing her version of “20 Questions:”
M: What are five qualities you look for in a friend?
K: Compassion. A sense of humor. Honesty. Intelligence. Tolerance. You?
M: Also a sense of humor. Loyalty. Friendliness. Steadfastness. Availability. *Thinks for a minute* Wow. If you take away sense of humor, all my friends need are the qualities found in a good dog.
