The Cat’s Visit: The Cat in the Hat Fanfiction

The Cat in the Hat set off to the house
of the boy and the girl, to give them a rouse
He brought with him toys and three other things
Like books and balloons and tossable rings.
Humidity was high on the warm summer day
and he didn’t think they’d go outside to play
instead they would stay at home in the dark
reading good stories and a bath with a shark.
He’d sit with them quiet and not read them junk
Kids like his friends didn’t want books that stunk.
No audience needed for the Cat in the Hat
He knew about fame and what went with that
Instead he chose quiet with friends like the kids
And stayed until bedtime, when both kids closed their lids.

‘I admit it did cross my mind.’
‘When will the other guests arrive?’
Brian said nothing.
‘There are other guests, right? On the other hand?’
Silence.
‘Brian?’
He smiled, but it unnerved her.
‘I think…

Simply 6 Minutes: The First Thing That Came To Mind

The Sound of One Hand Typing

It took me a while to figure out what was in the hands. Why, they’re palm trees! How clever! Palm trees growing out of the palms of the hands!

Kind of reminds me of the lair of some evil guy intent on destroying the world. Kind of like…. Bill Gates?

All that money and he still can’t get a decent haircut

Then I was reminded of something else…

Tony Randall and Jack Klugman were the best Felix Unger and Oscar Madison ever.
