As If


Someday, I will live as if . . .

I believe in happy endings,

my kisses really mend scraped knees,

and my thighs are perfect.

Yeah.

And, someday . . .

winged elephants will fly out of my butt.

I have not written this Magpie yet, as I am first catching up on reading others' blogs. Thus, I have read quite a few this early morning for this prompt. Yours is truly fantastic.

Do I sense a smidge of cynicism in here? Well-said cynicism, anyway.
