Oh, my funny brother-in-law and sister-in-law. When we went to their house for games shortly after Easter, they stashed this Easter decoration in the tub so that I almost had a heart attack when I went into the bathroom.?I’m the easiest person in the world to scare–just ask my husband, who’s always sneaking around corners and making me scream. Anyway, here’s what?this creepy picture?makes me think of:
1)?Hide-and-seek gone wrong
2) Voyeurs of the animal kingdom
3) A shy kid on the first day of school who hides in the bathroom
And here’s my poem first draft:
cubbies, hall passes–
I sneak book to?bathroom
and breathe free
