as heard in my living room.

Take One
the girl (showing me a LEGO structure): This is the entry to my house.

me (noticing interesting pieces): Why is there dude in a suit and a chain across the hall?

the girl: He’s the butler. [She lifts a police-looking figure] And this one is my security guard. No one gets past the chain without their approval.

me: What if I came over? Would I make it past security?

the girl: Maybe… If I’m not busy.

no entry.
I like him. He’s cute. I’ll take a life-size one.

Take Two
the boy
(asking me seriously): Remember in ‘The Force Awakens’ when […insert tiny details and precise dialogue I would never remember even after seeing that movie 6 times…]?

me (amazed): No. How on earth do you remember specific details like that?!?

the boy (deadpan): I have a very particular set of skills.



About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    It’s amazing what the brain remembers and what it doesn’t. My wonky brain is a character all by itself.
