whaT, whAT, wHAT, a, MOOSE????
Oh, whatever...... "MOSSY WHERE ARE YOU?" And with the abandon of a child, she lept off the porch and squarely onto my shoulders. Picture one leg on each side of my neck as she managed to create a rats nest of my hair which stood perfectly straight up when she finished. How does one start yelling at a creature one has missed oh so very much? Well, I figured it out and I did. "MOSSY, WHERE IN TARNATION HAVE YOU BEEN? WHAT DID YOU JUST DO TO MY HAIR? YOU SCARED ME TO DEATH WITH YOUR DISAPPEARING ACT AND........ MOSSY, WHAT IS MOVING IN MY HAIR?????????? "Be'Be', is sleeping so stop yelling at me! she demanded. "There is a living thing in my hair?" I was scared to touch it while simultaneously wanting to shave the whole mess off. "Oh, here, let me show you". And with that Mossy's tiny plump hand reached in and rummaged around. "Good griefus, MOssy!" I muttered, while trying to not run for a pair of scissors. "Shhhhhh, your waking her up" Mossy hissed in my ear, but I couldn't have spoken, if I wanted to. Before my nose, held in Mossy's chubby little hand was a creature of pure enchantment. She stretched and she yawned and I was spellbound for sure. Looking much like a Gerber baby except for the wings, she winked at me. She was oh so very tiny from her perfect little fingers to her tiny perfect toes. Her wings began to whirl much like a hummingbirds and seemingly began scattering a fine sprinkle of glow-in-the-dark-dust around her in a halo. Rising from MOssy's hand she settled back onto the top of my head and briefly I thought I heard the tiniest of sighs. Sarcastically, I asked if Mossy planned on staying around for abit. Can you please, explain why we so often lash out when all we would rather do is hug someone (or gnome) until they begged for mercy? Poof. Aaahhh, I'd done it again, but I knew she would be hanging around regardless of "poofing". Because, as you see, even now I could hear slight snores coming from the Be'Be' in my hair!!!!!!
