Good morning . . .
If you are a regular here, you will know that strange and wonderful creatures pop up in my journals nearly everyday. This week has been no exception. This quintet popped up on Wednesday. They told me they were on the lookout for squiggles. Um, ok. what sort of squiggles I asked. Thin, fat, straight, wiggly?
I thought that maybe they wanted me to draw them some squiggly lines. They told me not to be so silly, not squiggly lines... SQUIGGELS!!!!!! ooooook I muttered and went and made a lovely cup of violet tea...and pondered on silly birds and squiggles.
I finished my tea and went back to work. Blow me down, a whole flock had taken up residence in my art bunker and they were all muttering..."keep watch for those thieving furry nut snatchers, keep watch for those thieving furry nut snatchers..."
You can imagine the din they were making. They were driving me mad.
My feathers were a little ruffled having that twittering lot hanging about on lookout for darned squiggles, muttering away. Then this little girl strolled in very quietly and asked if she could keep the little chick that she had found. I told her that I thought there were enough birds hanging about , mad ones at that, what with their squiggle phobia...
She started to smile. You've got a lithp.
No, I don't have a lithp, lisp.
You said squiggles instead of squirrels.
SQUIRRELS!!!!!!! that's what they are looking out for.
Jolly good, we are all on high alert for squirrels... oh and nasty icky cooked carrots.
This is my life.... and sharing with Sunday Sketches today...
Hoping there is lots of Fun and Nonsense where you are :)
