Well, well! Look what sprang up in Kathy’s classroom while she was away on a field trip to the pumpkin farm! If I had to guess, I’d say it’s similar in structure to ancient Mayan ruins. She may want to look and see if any of the science experiments germinating in her students’ desks have spawned a sentient life form capable of forming a primitive society.
It’s not for lack of ideas, which were bountifully supplied by you, my readers, who are just brimming and crackling and sloshing with creativity.
Mostly, it’s because I’m tired of saving up aluminum cans in the bottom drawer of my desk just so I’ll have enough ammunition to answer whatever devious stratagem Kathy advances next.
Nevertheless, stay tuned. This ceasefire may not last. If history teaches us anything, it’s that peace is only achieved in fits and starts. And for those of you in the Coeur d’Alene area, feel free to display your solidarity with small, anonymous sortees–a can tucked into the purse, perhaps, or a beautiful silver and red yard ornament.
Unless you happen to be a Kathy sympathizer. Then you can just stay out of it.
