  1. And that smile did not explain it all?

    The dark, the sound, the touch, the suspense and then bang -the bump and the predictable fulfillment!

    It is the classical 5 act narrative, played out in record time. I love it.

  2. I walk backwards all the time.. sometimes try to run backwards too… almost always walk like the knight (horse) in chess (2.5 steps)when the floor is tiled. I think my gals will soon start blogging about their mom’s “strange ways”.. as you call it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • hey i do the knight when the floor is tiled (in temples also)

      ahem.
      your gals will have a LOT to say… they’ll have 10 blogs worth of content
