My Life Goals:

I Want to be a ghost

I want to haunt a house

I want to be a nightmare

I want to be the dark.

My Summer

Whirring fans

Root Beer floats

Buttered popcorn at the movies

Dried grass, dusty roads, dead flowers at the cemetery.

Moon Sets Sun rises

I’ve tasted, touched seen and heard it all

this Summer.

My Bucket List ( or do this before I die because it would read great in my obituary)

I want to invade Mars

I want to eat an Ice Cream Sudae dusted in gold

I want to write my name in pink

on the side of a wall

in

Paris

and call it art.

Dear Old Lady Me

I’m Anita a long time ago.

I’m not afraid of anything.

I climb trees, sneak out of the house and play in the yard in the middle of the night and I’m not afraid of monsters, but I am sort of scared of Alien Invasions from Mars.

I drank kerosene and got my stomach pumped  and I like to dance the Hula  with no clothes on.

One day I guess I’ll be an old 50 year Old Lady.

I hope you don’t embarass me. I hope you’re brave, I hope you have long hair and I hope you’re not afraid of monsters.

Yours Truly

4 Year old

Anita Marie Godfrey.

Dear 4 Year Old Me

I can’t believe you didn’t kill us before we turned 6 years old.

No I’m not afraid of monsters- I write about them.

I’m not afraid of Alien Invasions, I’m pulling for one.

I still get up in the middle of the night sometimes and I still go outside and when I do I think about you- I can’t believe something as little as  you wasn’t afraid to do that. I don’t go out like that without my dog and a hockey stick.

I write about you a lot because you were hands down the weirdest, strangest and most entertaining kid I’ve ever known.

Turning 50 was actually kind of fun, but being you as a kid was a riot.

Let’s get back together soon.

XOXO

Boys and Their Toys

One day I came home from work and found my dog, Hamish Macbeth and his big brother Micey ( he’s not a mouse, he’s a cat ) sleeping side by side.

That is not unusual. They do that a lot.

What was odd was that this time Hamish wasn’t napping with his favorite toy.

Micey  had Hamish’s favorite toy…and he was wide awake, staring at Hamish and looking very pleased with himself, don’t you think?

I am SO glad these two will never drive cars.
