or full of fairies

I just can't decipher this

Might I be so shallow as to mention the awesome boots?

Mike Golch said...

Cheri's right--it was hard to see past the rockin' boots.

The only experience we have had with Syrup of Ipecac (no longer recommended for parents to stock) was with a certain toddler boy who may or may not have swallowed a poisoness or not? toadstool from the front yard. Bleech.

Nah, still not gonna take ghetto girl. Good attempt though, sadly lacking in splatter.

Oh the fairy ring, it is a delight. Do you know how to make a fairy salad? It will make the fantasy life even more amazing - if you e-mail me, I will reveal the secret...

Hey Optimist? Shall we chip in to get this shirt for Mel? I'd be more than willing - ha!

Yes those poems will make Anika Thomas regret she ever ever took pen to paper or wordpress or whatever when she was twelve.

I defy her to be able to top these fairy ring poems.

I think I might have to google her myself!

So cool! I've never seen a fairy ring before! It's beautiful.

Magpie said...

Ack - there's a fungus among us! I knew you were one of us.

Fairies? Mushrooms?

I love that poem.
