my key fob missing its insides and screaming.
me looking for the insides of my key fob and screaming.
went to have coffee with my friend
locked up my car
put my key in my pocket
when i returned to the car
all i had left of my electronic key
was the empty screaming shell pictured above
insides were nowhere to be found
used the key/shell in the car door
and the panic button screamed nonstop
with no electronics to turn it off
until my car started
each and every time
a bit dumbfounded
as key fob was still in one piece
in my pocket
found a tiny screw missing in back
somehow it had
opened itself up
insides popped out
closed itself back up
and was empty
like it never happened
luckily i have daughters
with my keys all over the place
and my car has stopped screaming
but my old key fob still looks upset.

but the combination is locked up in the safe.”

who lost one rubber slipper
in the middle of the woods
maybe i will
with the person
who is wearing the other
“you cannot put the same shoe on every foot. “
today we found a beautiful flower that survived
under the snow and ice and rain and arctic temperatures of january.
were very surprised.
it must be enchanted.
“the only words that ever satisfied me as describing nature
are the terms used in fairy books, charm, spell, enchantment.
they express the arbitrariness of the fact and its mystery.”

headed off to the puzzle house
to try out an ‘escape room adventure’
just going in was a bit scary
and i thought
we might have to escape right away
eight of us
read a story
codes that we had to translate and crack
a tangram puzzle
a piñata head
hidden and found things
a lot of darkness
and a little bit of wit
we had one hour and made it through two rooms
never got into the third
what an adventure
eight of us ventured back out.
“there are always wonderful mysteries to confront.”
at the picnic
something went missing
but who was responsible?
i have no idea
i’ll never tell.
“without mysteries, life would be very dull indeed.
what would be left to strive for if everything were known?”

why the guy
next to me today
belted dress pants?
maybe a sudden inspiration on his way home from work?
maybe in case he runs into the boss?
maybe told someone he was going somewhere else?
maybe dressing to impress?
maybe i have no idea
it is one of
life’s interesting little
