You Can’t See Me

Twenty four year old Kate was playing with her three year old nice Kelly and she crossed her right arm over her eyes and said, “Na, na, na, na you can’t see me.”  Little Kelly replied, “Aunt Kate, just because you have covered up your eyes, saying that I can’t see you is not a valid point, because I can still see you.  It is not all that complicated, as you would have to cover my eyes for me not to be able to see you.  I don’t see your eyes, but just because you are out of sight, that doesn’t mean that you are out of mind, as I will always think of you and about that night when you were sleepless in the town of Harmony and you told me that you were having a baby and I would have a new cousin.”

Kate said, “Wow that was an impressive answer and I admire your accuracy and I am so proud that you will never be taken advantage of by any riff raff, or disreputable or undesirable people, because you have a functioning brain.  You will know when your glass is half empty and when it is half full, which wheel needs the grease and you will be able to determine which way the wind is blowing and know when there is trouble at the gate.  How about we watch a movie while I comb that scraggly hair of yours, but first we will need to go to Stage Clear and you have to pick up your toys.  While you are doing that, I will get us each some ice for our drinks.  I think I found a movie that we may both enjoy called Robin Hood Turns Over a New Leaf in Sherwood Forest, what do you think, will that work for you?”

  1. You managed to fit a lot of prompt words into a very entertaining story. I have been so wrapped up in this move thing that I haven’t posted as much as I usually do, responded to a whole lot of prompts, or even been able to keep up with the posts that show up in my reader. And I probably won’t for maybe the next month or two. But I alway enjoy the way you weave your tales around so many different prompts.

    1. Thanks Fandango. Life has a way of collecting things and when you move, you realize how many things you have and you need to select a space for them so you can find them in case you ever want them. I look in my closet and see that it is piled up with junk from floor to celling and sometimes I wonder where the hell it all came from. Eventually you will get settled and you will be back in your normal routine. With the impeachment trial going on and you still recovering from your surgery, nobody expects you to be writing posts like you did before all the disruptions.

      1. Jim, first of all, I’m so sorry for the loss of your niece. That’s tragic. My condolences to you and her family.

        Second, thanks so much for making me the main character of your fascinating story. I’m flattered, although me on a skateboard is laughable. And tiny space robots? Ha!

        Also, thanks for pointing out this post to me. I haven’t had too much time to read most of the posts that the bloggers I follow are posting and I k ow I’m missing a lot of great ones (like this, which would be great even if I weren’t the star!

        See you when you return from North Carolina. And again, I’m sorry for your loss.
