After hoarsely calling downstairs in my sunshine yellow house with white shutters and no one responding
I resort to messaging: “I am jumping off our copper covered roof
with a hamster between my teeth.’
That’s what it takes to get attention around here but the only response I got from MY Victor who is Danny is “very funny”
as I lay in bed sick with laryngitis and a wheezing cough
sounding like a Mickey Mouse version of Lauren Bacall who was a sexy beast.
I have become invisible apparently too.
I message my family on their smart phones,
still no response so I resort to silliness like the wriggling hamster tail clenched
between my bloody lips.
That should do it, I think.
No, not really.
Doesn’t anyone have a sense of humor except for me?
I bet Jenny the Bloggess would understand; she is my heroine or heroin, either way. Or both.
This is for her, because she makes me laugh and brightens my day more than my sunshine yellow house and because I am a
true nerd who pre-ordered her book from Amazon and it is not even due out until April. Jenny, I live in NY so I’m here if you need me,
but more importantly, we need YOU. Your honesty and strength makes us all better people. Yes, Jenny, You Did That.
