My writing, elsewhere

My two most recent posts over at HSLDA: falling in love with pharaohs and nature studies.

Potted plants

"That planter is EVIL. It drips rust all over," I told Jonathan. Emphatically.
"As you have expressed before."
"And I will KEEP expressing it until I do something about it!"

Meg: "Here's the loose thread I was telling you about."
Me: "Is that like the loose thread of destiny?"
Meg: "Yeah."

Surprised by unicorns

I keep forgetting we even have a unicorn. It's much less common than dragons, around here. Twice now in the last two days Jonathan has totally boggled me - I was concentrating on other things and suddenly, bam! A unicorn enters the conversation!

Jonathan to Meg: "Go. Go quickly. Without unicorns."

Jonathan: "Gahh. I just tripped on a unicorn."

It's not even a whole unicorn. It's a stick unicorn, like a stick horse. And it has felt leaves in its mane. We got it from Ikea.
