It's like being in a cubicle all over again.
May 22, 2007
Today's post is guest-authored by my six-year-old neighbor, who composed it while standing on her recycle bin so she could talk to me over the fence, as she does every day, whenever possible. I think she has a strong and unique voice for the blogosphere and a innate sense of storytelling. Mostly I admire her knack for the run-on sentence.
Hi! I am tall, see how I can see you now? This is better for my toes than just the fence plus I am only a foot away from our trampoline did you know we had a trampoline? and so if I fall like whoa! I will fall on the trampoline but only if I don't fall less than a foot which would be bad my mom says we are having chicken for dinner.
We made up a game you wanna know how to play it? It's called cracking the egg because we go like this and then we go POW like this and stand up and we make it up all by ourselves my brothers and me and my brother said we should call it cracking the egg and that's what we call it your dog is taking a poo you gonna have to pick it up?
We watched our friend's dog for awhile but she was big and so were her poos and also stinky hey look I am standing on one leg can your baby stand one leg? does he say goo goo gah gah? I used to say goo goo gah gah but not anymore, maybe like six years ago maybe, okay probably five because I am only getting started with six but I was five for a long time my birthday was just a couple weeks ago and we got ice cream and you know what? Today is my dad's birthday and we're throwing him a party but it's a surprise so shh don't tell him, okay? Well, he knows we're throwing a party but he doesn't know who is coming to the party so that's the surprise part also I cleaned my room does your baby have a lot of toys in there?
My brother claps his hands like this and he is so loud do you ever hear him clap his hands? Like this? SO LOUD. I MEAN REALLY. Boys are like that. Loud. Your baby looks like a boy already I saw him in his baby pool the other day does he go in his baby pool everyday? How many days? Does he play with your hair ever?
I've been in your house before. My friend used to live there and I remember what it looks like. I saw it empty too after she moved out and I was sad do you think I could see what your house looks like now sometime? I am good with babies maybe we could play sometime? And when your baby gets bigger he could come to play on the trampoline and I will make sure he doesn't fall in the foot of space here okay I have to go now bye!
