Pre-Promenade

PERCY:  Jan always gets excited when she sees the daffodils coming up each February.

MERCI:  Yes, she does a wild dance in the dog pen and all the neighbors come over to take photos.

PERCY:  I can't believe you just said that, Merci.  You never lie!

MERCI;  I wasn't lying.  I was sprinkling fairy dust on the story to make it more interesting.  (A Little Fairy Dust.)

PERCY:  You're right.  That does make a better story.  Let's leave it in.

MERCI:  Our daffodils are on the neighbor's property line and when their privacy fence was installed on top of them,, Jan thought they were lost forever.


PERCY:  Oh, she of little faith.  They don't grow straight, though.  They crowd close to the fence and lean forward.

MERCI:  These were the first buds of the season last month. 

PERCY:  They are the hardware of spring at our house. 

MERCI:  I believe you mean the harbinger of spring.

PERCY:  No, I actually meant hardware.  You don't have a working computer without hardware and spring can't arrive without a pre-promenade of daffodils.

MERCI:  You're making that up.  There's no such word as pre-promenade.

PERCY:  Perhaps there wasn't.  There is now.

  18. Great new word! You kitties and woofies are sooooo creative.

    Mom bean luvs the daffodils. Even though we have had a very mild winter we won't have spring (and flowers) for at least 6 more weeks.
