how to milk a cow

A COW makes milk. Then the cow makes more milk. Then the cow needs milking, so you milk it. Now the cow is milked.

banana prescriptions

photo: jetheriot

One great thing about medication prescriptions is that they're standardized. There's a blank where the doctor fills in the name of the patient, an empty space where he writes out how many pills to take and how many times a day to take them, and a blank where he signs his name. The symbols may seem strange, but they have precise meanings, and they communicate very specific instructions.

the snail of things

A SPARROW on the curled lip of a flower pot, a male sparrow. I can tell by the dark feathers down his back. When he cocks his head skyward, I see his mask in profile.

Her petals blanch as they twist open . . . pink, pink-rose, pink-white, white-pink, white-yellow, pink-yellow, white-rose. Puff, a yellow powder on your nose!

sleep today

a box of wands

I went to Magick Cauldron a couple of days ago to buy a magic wand. I walked up to the woman behind the counter and asked her where her wands were. She said, "What kind of wands?" I was flummoxed. I held my hands about a foot apart to show her what size I was looking for. She said, "Wooden? Metal?" She seemed exasperated by my magic wand ignorance.

An old family photograph printed on rough card is so over-exposed that the whites of the peoples' eyes blur into the whites of their faces.

phantom radio

I love/hate how on satellite radio there is only either weird digital static or silence when the connection goes out. They don't make static like they used to.
