One imaginary flying unicorn. Female. Apparently answers to “Stripe.” Light blue coat with green/blue mane. I don’t have a picture.
My daughter (Kathleen) spent much of the morning looking alternately out of the front and back windows, only to announce despairingly that she doesn’t see the unicorn.
I find her apparently very real disappointment disconcerting given that it is, after all, an imaginary flying unicorn.
The evidence I have gathered thus far suggest that there is a direct correlation between (A) having children, and (B) needing to sweep the kitchen because there is cereal on the floor.
Shallow or deep
It’s there while you sleep
Work hard, and you’ll run out of it
Beauty takes it away
Though held, it won’t stay
One suffers if brought up short of it
Though drawn, invisible
Though caught, unimprisonable
Birth to death, you’ll never be free of it
I told you it would look better in the dark!
Given everything else that I actually have been doing today, can anyone guess what I am supposed to be doing?
If you answered “grading,” give yourself an A … because I probably won’t get around to it.
Stage 2 of operation “Put House Christmas Lights Up” is complete!
To be fair, I am hoping it looks better in the dark.
