  1. There are some that are both and expect the asphalt, among other things, to cooperate!

      • Sounds like your asphalt is trying to cooperate. Have you watered it enough to sustain Lilies?

        • What’s this water that you speak of? I was giving it whiskey.

        • That should have produced snapdragons. Your asphalt might require professional assessment.

          If you can purloin a duck, you should be able to get water off it’s back.

        • So… feathers!! Interesting theory, watering asphalt with feathers… wouldn’t that produce Birds of Paradise?

        • You could be on to something. With the dandelions wouldn’t it make yellow birds? This too would make sense, Creme de Banana.

          If we could get those eggs to lay around Easter we could put a well known chocolate maker to shame!

  3. I never saw the difference, in myself
    Still, I am, whichever way you look
    So maybe I am both,
    Or we
    Are one

    • The line is, indeed, very thin.

      I’ve seen the poet in you, but have I seen the madman?

      • These days it isn’t that hard for the barking mad to appear normal. Come to think of it, maybe we are the normal.

      • Pahaha! According to my MBTI test I am a Campaigner… – basically a diplomatic cheerleader. I think I’ll start campaigning to ensure lilies on EVERY roadway. And glitter. And rainbows….
