Fandango hosts this awesome reminder of all the time we spend with our words!
This is from January 7th last year. I do love The Cat in the Hat and haven’t done any fanfiction work in quite a while. Enjoy! https://christinebialczak.com/2021/01/07/distracted-your-daily-word-prompt/
The Cat in the Hat comes to play
The Cat in the Hat knew the mom would be mad
if she saw all the toys and goodies he had.
He tried to keep quiet and out of her way
to keep her distracted was the way he could stay.
He started with smiles and a proud, firm handshake
His brow started sweating, she would know it was fake
All he had to get by was this first “How d’ya do?”
Then to get to the kids, just he and those two.
So he started to walk on his back legs to show
that he knew that his back was the rude way to go.
The mother was pleased by the Cat’s gentle tone
She was happy to leave the three of them all alone.
The Cat took his bag and all the tricks he had found
The comics and posters and the car with the sound
He spread them all out on the rug in the room
He had his own bag and could clean with his broom.
The kids were so happy to see all his stuff
He wondered if they thought there wasn’t enough.
But for hours they played without one single fight
A perfect fun day led to a quite tired night.
