Sometimes life drains away all my creativity and all I am capable of is sitting in my armchair reading a book. This makes me sad.
Then my husband gets an idea…
Let’s give Mimi some twine.
Then we get carried away…
Let’s give Mimi my Jane Austen action figure.
“What’s this? A new toy? I wonder if it’s edible…”
Then we decide to write a children’s story…
There once was a kitty named Mimi. She had a gnome named Ferdinand.
Mimi and Ferdinand were the best of friends.
Then Ferdinand started to get on Mimi’s nerves.
So she grabbed him with her paw…
…and had a delicious snack.
Don’t feel sorry for Ferdinand, children.
As you can see, he was reincarnated as a Beyoncé the Giant Metal Chicken puppet.
Mimi, filled with remorse over eating her friend, retired to the countryside and became a painter.
Then Ferdinand lived forever in renown as The Bloggess’ chicken, Beyoncé.

This is why Mike is the best. This is also why I think we should write children’s books.
