“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
I hear my mom calling my name. Uh oh. I can tell something's up.
I ask what I did now. She says I ruined her cookie sheet.
I say how did I ruin it, it looks fine to me.
She says I scrubbed the finish off with the scouring pad.
I said well I had to get the pizza off.
She said why'd you use my non-stick cookie sheet to cook pizza on?
I said better question is how did my pizza stick to a non-stick sheet?
I got my smile from the sunshine,
I got my tears from the rain.
I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
And a peacock taught me to be vain.
A little owl in a tree so high,
He taught me how to wink my eye.
I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
But the guy that lived two caves from me,
He taught me how to love.
