A Glimpse into My Unpublishables

Here's a small slice of my Summer writing, in case you were wondering what we've been doing - five minutes at a time and spelling shortcuts!

7/18/17 - Guess who said this: Oh Man! I'm peeing on the rug!

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 – 9:06 a.m.
Wolf woke up at 7:15 today, a full hour earlier than usual. I should have known, since he was talking about it last night at bedtime – he said he’d sleep in the car on the way to the museum. It’s like he willed himself awake and unfortunately I absentmindedly rewarded it with Power Rangers cuz I wanted to take a shower. He has just never liked to sleep.
Mattie is some kind of savant crack-up. She asks these extremely valid questions (told check your clothes for stains and if you don’t find any put them here on the table to wear again: ‘where do I put them if they have a stain?’). Today she made a droid out of mega-blocks and he happens to make coffee because she loves it. And another creation is his helper who adds the peanut butter! Ha! Hmmmmmmm…..

8/14/07 - On the way home from Petland (just browsing) I asked what their favorite pets were. Mattie said the fish (would you believe they sell Pufferfish for $599.99?) and Wolf said the blue bird in the front of the store (parakeet). Mattie then changed her answer to bird + said she'd name it Coke. Isn't Barbie's bird named that? 'No! It's Coco!' said Wolf. Wolf then said he was naming his bird Diet Coke!

Thursday, August 16, 2007 – 10:25 a.m. – Today’s game is called ‘Ninja Pantry’ created from their recent love of Pucca and spurred on no doubt by my request that they put the groceries in the pantry. Wolf emphatically ordered, “Buy something else Ninjas! Don’t you know how expensive Waffle Mix is?” And immediately afterward they all go upstairs to make waffles!
