The blue thread

September 19, 2012

Apparently my dental floss philosophy now extends to spools of thread but not scissors. Joss ran through the house today trailing blue thread and when his passion overrode my pragmatism, I let him.

My thoughts turn to the ancient Minotaur finally bested by the unspooled thread setting the captives free.

I tell the kids to be creative and write about the little boy with the thread.

And they do–2 limericks and a short essay.
