This week I've seen...
A dictionary lying, sodden, in a puddle (blasphemy!)
A turquoise-haired girl leap from a car and wretch onto the ground as pot smoke rolled out behind her. She looked lost in our neighborhood.
Blood squeezing from Kitty Cat's mouth and over her bottom lip just after she lost her first tooth. She danced around happily like a vampire who'd just found some juicy prey.
A man wearing a shirt with a chest patch that said, Cancer Lifeline Superhero.
Another man next to me in a coffee shop with papers full of squiggles and pi signs and x's and y's.
Faces softened, faces of middle-aged women and guys with ponytails and iPhones, when they saw a Bernese Mountain Dog tied to a bike rack. Almost everyone who passed stooped to pet him.
Myself in a dream wherein I was on a cooking reality show, racing to make some pasta dish. I was crushed because I couldn't find sun dried tomatoes. As I was frantically searching through cupboards, a producer came up and told me I was dressed sloppily and needed to buy new clothes. Analyze amongst yourselves.
Fruit Bat reading Kitty Cat a book as they sat curled up on the couch together. What a sweet way to start a weekend.
