Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

(F) Fussy Eater


(Some little monsters I know...oct 31st 2001)

This one might be a bit messy, and just a tad gory, but I happen to like it! :-)
...and other parents might just recognise this scene...

Fussy Eater


Munch! Crunch! Splitter-splatter!
Mother monster looked up from her platter.
Squish! Squash! Sloppity-slosh!
Baby monster was playing with his nosh.


"It's very rude
to play with your food!"
mother chastised
(but she wasn't surprised!)
"I don't like it,
not one little bit!"
Baby grumbled,
as his tummy rumbled.

"Just have a taste -
it's too good to waste."
Mother tried to coax
baby, but he chokes,
"It makes me sick!
Take it away, quick!"

Splat! A brain hit the wall.
Pop-Pop-Plop! A bullet train of eyeballs
stuck fast to the ceiling.
Mother monster had that sinking feeling...

Every meal this occurred.
And her protests were completely unheard.
"But all monsters eat meat!
And this tasty human is such a treat!"

One in a million,
baby monster stuck to his opinion.
"You're a barbarian,
but me? Well, I'm a vegetarian!"

Yeah, that's where it came from - dinner with 4 kids at the table used to be pretty lively! :-)

Fun stuff! The kids at school would love this! If I had my own class, I would share this now!

So, mother of invention, are you a Headteacher? Do you just teach part-time now? I am wondering why you haven't got your own Gr 3 class anymore?

I am on a health leave because I have had tons of problems,mostly stemming from diabetes in the form of a mild MI , or heart attack, last Feb and had 1 stent put in 1 artery. I need to do a lot of exercise but need to build up to it. I also have chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia so I was going 1/2 time anyway since 1992. I would be too stressed and tired to have a healthy body right now if I went to school. So I go over to help just to keep my finger in the pie sort of thing. I miss the kids terribly! I have no children..too risky due to diabetes. Not sure I'll even go back next year ..I would hate to lose any health I've gained.

A smile is exactly what I was in need of this evening.

Mother of Invention- sorry to hear it's been that bad for you. It sounds like one thing on top of another! :-(

I kinda know what the tiredness bit's like, though, as I have hypothyroidism (though treated now, I had two years where sleep was more irresistable than day to day living...)

But, I'm glad to hear you still do some teaching - it makes all the difference to have something to look forward to, doesn't it!

Kilroy - glad you enjoyed it...as I said, it's one of my favourite of the kiddie ones, because it's a bit of fun!
