Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Parting: Sweet Sorrow

April 1, 2008


All the way home from the Airport yesterday, the squall in the back seat was impassible:

Maimy! Maimy! Maimy!… Where’s Maimy?… Where’d she go?
Maimy! Maimy! Maaaiiiimie!!

No matter the comfort offered, the answer was the same:

No, no music… Maimy! Maimy! Maimy!

No, no snacks… Maimy! Maimy! Maimy!

No, no books… Maimy! Maimy! Maimy!

No, no buses… Maimy! Maimy! Maimy!

NO, no paci… Maimy! Maimy! Maimy!

NO, no home… Maimy! Maimy! Maimy!

And so it went:

OH, MAIMY!!! Maimy! Maimy! Maimy! Bhuh, hah, haaaaaa, Waaaah….
