deeply lost in thought, looking down at his bare feet, claudio climbed the worn-out stairs to face the 3 most important people in his life. with his left hand he reached into his coat and touched the tube nestling in the interior pocket, thinking to himself, can i actually do this? the world was spinning hard now, and he prefered to watch his feet pressing down the red carpet rather than to meet their eyes, but he took in a breath, and quietly stated, "i'm leaving".

later, when she'd come-to, they'd drift out onto the cool of the veranda like always - he'd light a cigarette for her and they'd talk of many things, their voices hushed, all the time the tube would pass back and forth between them - the moon's aureole framed perfectly in its cylinder of sky just as it always had been - just as it always would be.

Finally the tube came to rest for good in Maria's hand when she, finally refusing to pass it back, caught the flash of mute gratitude in Claudio's eyes as he reluctantly turned into the pleading faces of his father and mother, the ticking clock, the worn velvet of the camel-colored couch which he briefly touched in passing: the soft tread down the stairs for the last time spoke of weariness, regret, dread for the task he'd left for her to complete, and as she and the moon watched his barefoot retreat down the tree-lined path, she took his final backward look as a sign to open the tube and unleash its dark inevitability on a vast wasteland of just desserts.

"Smile and nod, smile and nod and hope she doesn't - " the trapped receptionist pasted on her best "captivated" expression (chosen from a whole mental catalogue of faces appropriate for various tasks, including her politely drop-dead "one moment please," her quizzical "not my fault," and the ever-useful "adoring fawn" she'd perfected for the boss on his grumpy days) as she listened, horrified, to the bored, dumpy coworker detailing how she'd gotten revenge on "those annoying Samoan neighbors" by parading around nude by her hot tub during their family reunion in the next yard.

from the inner office behind her came the voice of the newly-appointed REGIONAL MANAGER - "miss makik, step into my office for a moment would you please?"

miss makik, bewildered and carrying a box of kleenex under her armpit, yet graceful and stunning like an ageing wildebeest, swayed into the newly appointed regional manager's office and made a loud honking noise.

"dang!" she said, "i'm terribly sorry mr grünelhüger.. i can't help it.." as they both stared in horror at the thing which had lodged itself between the base of his executive settee and the floor; its eye looking back at them greenly, unblinking.

a tender moment had forever been destroyed - where once there had been magic, now there was an awkward silence; where once knowing glances had been exchanged, now there was mr. grünelhüger's nervous condition acting up; where once sweet nothings had been whispered, now that green thing callously demanded "ARRRRRRFH!" and made a slippery sound on the freshly mopped hardwood floor underneath the executive settee in mr. grünelhüger's regional manager's office.

"well, that's that - i'm sorry miss makik, but you might as well return to your desk; there's no point in our discussing what actions to take toward the imminent appearence of strem on the market now," said mr.grünelhüger as the thing from beneath the settee scuttled across the floor, squeezed under the door and was gone.

Froufrou liked to sit out on the porch on warm mornings, feeling the day's gathering momentum, and listening as the sparrows swooped down to snatch the bright red ficus berries, their shiny little beaks going bap! bap! bap! on the corrugated aluminum roof.

One particularly sunny morning, Froufrou was nodding off a little (the bapping of the sparrows serving as a powerful soporific) when a magpie landed right at her feet and snapped her awake by blurting "WISH!" in its harsh bitter magpie voice.

Purring, she considered her options carefully - her life as a feline thus far had been more comfortably genteel than most, and she would frankly have preferred to just pounce and eat her new companion were it not for the entire tin of sardines she'd just consumed not half an hour before.

Dang, I seemed to have killed the thread by making FrouFrou a cat. It seemed natural at the time, but now I'm having second thoughts.

Now spammers are moving in!

Let's start again:

Froufrou liked to sit out on the porch on warm mornings, feeling the day's gathering momentum, and listening as the sparrows swooped down to snatch the bright red ficus berries, their shiny little beaks going bap! bap! bap! on the corrugated aluminum roof.

One particularly sunny morning, Froufrou was nodding off a little (the bapping of the sparrows serving as a powerful soporific) when a magpie landed right at her feet and snapped her awake by blurting "WISH!" in its harsh bitter magpie voice.

Flipping her feather boa out of the way, FrouFrou determined in her heart not to miss this golden opportunity - like the last time a magpie spoke to her - and immediately wished for a hundred more wishes.
