off to see the wizard.

Standard

 

(picture me as the one in the dress without braids, sparkly shoes, or little dog)

when going to the library

to pick up books i had ordered

i walked into the lobby

to grab them off the shelf

 the rest of the library was still closed

it was dead silent

no other people were around

but i swear that i heard someone talking to me

i looked in all directions and didn’t see anyone

i heard someone speak once again

 looked up to see a giant head on a screen

 asking if i was there for a book

my eyes got huge (and i possibly jumped a bit)

so unexpected – talking to a head on a screen

i then knew how dorothy must have felt in the wizard of oz

when she saw the wizard’s head projected on the big curtain

i thanked the giant head, grabbed my books, and walked down the street

thinking about how much i love being surprised by life.

happy 81st anniversary to the wizard of oz

(i now have a new appreciation for it)

“be unprepared, that’s my motto. let life surprise you.”
