Recently a friend went to view “her”, the new Spike Jonze flick about a man who falls in love with his OS (that would be computer Operating System for those of you as technologically illiterate as myself). After hearing my friends thoughts on the movie (double thumbs up and a box of Kleenex later) my wee little brain began whirring….what about a little something for the ladies? Below is my creative compilation comprised of components from my kitchen cabinets. Viola! Movie release date Spring 2014.
That moment when you know that she knows that you know that she knows. Confused yet? Let me try this another way….
Daughter Two: “So, Mom, I’ve been having some trouble with the tooth fairy.”
Me: “What kind of trouble?” (Asked in a sing-song, Mary Poppins voice – ‘cause that’s how I roll)
Daughter Two: “Well I put my tooth under my pillow last night and the tooth fairy didn’t come. AGAIN.”
Me (feigning surprise): “Oh, you put that under your pillow already? “
I should note that at this point she is glaring at me like something from “Evil Dead” and I am realizing that there is a very good reason that second children have an actual syndrome named after their status in life. Thank GOD I was a first born.
Daughter Two: “Yes, yes I did. And once again she is late. MAYBE she’ll make it tonight.”
Final piercing glare then exit, stage left.
And then I knew. I knew that she knew that I knew that she KNEW. We were there – that delicate crossroad in life when the fairy tale ends but no one is ready to say the words. She knew that the fairy wasn’t delayed because of a volcanic explosion in Iceland that grounded all creatures of flight or late by a couple of days because she had a broken wing. Uh-huh, before you ask, used them both and few more. Like I said above – second child syndrome is real for a reason.
So bittersweet is that moment of knowing, for both of us. Because now I know that she knows that I definitely suck as a fairy.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go make some interest payments on an enamel coated dentin blob.
UNABASHEDLY WANDERING THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED.

Overcome by overt mending,
Once corrected it’s worth sending.
Organized octonary coup!

Nervous is the newborn novelist,
Needing always a new nugget.

Nestled in nifty nouns.
Nags for notice.
Nonet: A nonet is a nine line poem. The first line containing nine syllables, the next line has eight syllables; the next line has seven syllables. That continues until the last line (the ninth line) which has one syllable. Nonets can be written about any subject. Rhyming is optional.

Day 8 of the Blogging From A to Z Challenge April 2012 – H
Hurried huntsmen hasten to hunt
Herding hapless hares towards home
Happy to have horses up front
High hills and hidden hollows to roam
Heading house bound into the gloam
Hasten towards heartwarming blaze
Hypnagogic heat forms a dome
Heavy heads nod off in a haze
(Helpful Hint: huitain = group of eight lines of verse with eight syllables per line with a rhyming scheme to adhere to)
