Some books are made into great movies.
Mine is more t-shirt and coffee mug material.
note: I think my next book will be thicker … I need some sweaters for the winter.
Mean Things I Say About People #3
“No, you don’t sound like a broken record … you sound like a half broken record … cause I can still hear you.”
(the italicized section is usually muttered inaudibly)

I’m going to sell paper clips that look like “ears” and “dog ears”.
People who like to “ear mark” and “dog ear” pages can still practice their habit on borrowed books, but with out the repercussions.
note: No animals or people were harmed in the making of these paperclips.
double note: Is it ok to “dog ear” pages in books about dogs?
triple note: Do people pierce dog ears? or am I on the cutting edge of stupidity?
quadruple note: Money Making Scheme #1 and #2 and #3 and #4 and #5 are still scheming.

Asteroid B-612 The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
When I was a kid, some things just blew my tiny little mind.
Disneyland, The Planet of the Apes, Where The Wild Things Are, The Wizard of Oz, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, and Dr. Seuss.
Before I even knew what a box was, these other people had been thinking outside of it for a long time.
And some were thinking inside it.
“This is only his box. The sheep you asked for is inside.”
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
Maybe there is no “thinking outside the box” after all.
Just some people have bigger boxes than others.
note: I think my box is full of crayons (and they are all the same colour).

At work I usually do a tour with some students of all the cubbie holes and hidden areas, of the building I work in, as a follow up to reading the story, “A Secret Room”.
We go into the storage area under the stairs, examine cupboards that look like part of the wall, and look behind doors that don’t get used very often.
There is a large crawl space under my room.
The entrance is under my desk.
The cement cover reminds me of the tunnel entrance in “The Great Escape”: the one that was in the barrack’s shower.
I move my desk, lift the lid, and let the kids have a look.
I tell them, this is where I put badly behaved students.
The kids usually look at me, stick their heads in the hole again, look at me again, and nervously smile.
I usually don’t have any behavioural problems from them for at least 5 minutes.
