The Not So Wise Man

My friend Richard is always reciting quotes and old Chinese proverbs. Don’t get me wrong, I’m fond of a quote or a cleverly thought out phrase but Richard does go overboard and it’s getting rather annoying.  

Today he was cloud watching and claimed to see one in the shape of an elephant - a stretch of anyone’s imagination. When I looked up he said, ‘when a wise man points to the stars, only a fool looks at his finger.’

I am not a fool. I am a dog and I was looking at the doughnut in his hand.

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.

"The Prayer to the Aliens"
O’ my dear, sweet Aliens, I pray to thee to take me awayBeam me up to your ship and we’ll have a space holiday.While I might be a human girl, I can learn Alien stuff fastAnd we can make me being an Earthling, a thing of the past.
To sweeten the deal, you can take my parents to dissectThey got all sorts of tissue, and lotsa’ organs to inspect.Maybe evaporate my big sister, or my little brother, the pestAnd I’ll brag that I got go to with you, cuz you like me best.
We’ll be the greatest of friends, having adventures in spaceCriss-crossing the universe with big smiles on our faceSolving galactic mysteries, finding new planets to exploreI’ll never have a reason to be sad anymore.
And even when they all tell me that you’re really not out there…That you don’t hear my prayers, and if ya did you don’t care…I’ll always believe in you truly, with all my 8 year old heartAnd after you finally rescue me, our lives together can start.
Amen.

What’s That Noise?

“Andrew, what’s that creaking noise? Sounds like it’s coming from the attic.” I said.

He pulled down the loft-hatch and we climbed up the old ladder. I shone the torch around the dusty attic and over the odd pieces of small furniture.

“I can’t hear it from up here.” he said.

As we turned to leave and the noise started again.

“It’s definitely something up here.” I said, shining the torch around again. “Something’s moving!”

In the far corner a rocking chair was steadily moving by itself, causing the floorboard beneath it creak as it went back and forth.

On The Move

Getting ready to move house so I shall be quiet for the next few weeks :)
