Gymboree playdates; small girls... ack! That is to say, medium-sized girls playing, exhausting themselves on climbing walls, slides, trampolines, bungee towers, huge air mattresses, forts of enormous cushions, ball pits, balloon rooms, mini-soccer fields, dark rooms, swings, long balance beams, multiple levels, and then pizza followed by ice cream are actually enough to exhaust them after a few hours, though I can hardly believe it.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

Sounds like a successful event!! All the shrieks and frenzied activity, a little sugar overload, and each one will sleep soundly!!!

It was not a regular laugh. It was an expression of nervousness. Note the sweat on the forehead.

It’s us who get exhausted watching them. Ah! The perks of being an adult. 🙂
