On, In, and Around Mondays: Marketing to Your Sister
I am remembering an afternoon when my Littlest wanted her sister's attention.
She chit chatted, poked, whirled. Nothing worked.
So she stole away and found a Shel Silverstein poetry book. Then, she looked up an excerpt of Sherlock Holmes on the Internet and translated it into Italian (goodness only knows why! :) Then she printed the translation and carefully trimmed it, so the size would fit nicely into Mr. Silverstein's pages.
"Look," she held the book under Sara's nose.
Now this was something that warranted a glance. A book!
Sara opened Shel, and Sonia helped her flip to the Italian Sherlock Holmes tucked within.
"That is so cool," Sara said, when she realized what Sonia had done. After all, Sara loves Holmes, even, I guess, if he's speaking Italian.
I sat on my bed and chuckled. Now that, I thought, is how you market to your sister.
Do you have an amusing event, or some simple thoughts on laughter? It needn't be laugh-out-loud funny. We would be happy to have you share a chuckle. Check out our Laughter Writing Project, at The High Calling.
On, In and Around Mondays (which partly means you can post any day and still add a link) is an invitation to write from where you are. Tell us what is on, in, around (over, under, near, by...) you. Feel free to write any which way... compose a tight poem or just ramble for a few paragraphs. But we should feel a sense of place. Would you like to try? Write something 'in place' and add your link below.
If you could kindly link back here when you post, it will create a central meeting place. :)
