5 things you will probably not see the next time you open your front door

1. A dinosaur. Which is just as well: cool in theory, not so much in practice (as was demonstrated in Jurassic Park).

2. A unicorn. Which--well, it would depend on the type of unicorn. Some are nifty, some are lovely, some are freaky and mean and unicorns more by courtesy than anything else.

3. Sixteen geese wearing red galoshes and yellow rain hats. (What? Why are you looking at me like that?)

4. A polar bear wearing red galoshes and a yellow rain hat. (My big sister did a wood carving of one--it's pretty nifty and I love it irrationally.)

5. Me. Which most of you would agree is a good thing, although a couple of you might not mind.


Next week there will be a real 5 things--I have a bunch that are partly written, I just ran out of steam before I could finish one for today.
