We went to a little amusement park (excuse me — aZoosment park) called Santa’s Village yesterday. While rummaging around in my purse for another quarter so we could put our stuff in a locker (never found it), I pulled out the Giant Pinkie Ring. Yes, that Giant Pinkie Ring. So, it had been riding around in there for several weeks. Please observe and appreciate its hugeness … I’m glad to have it back in time for the end of summer.
I have two time-sensitive things to tell you about, and I can’t pause to emote or explain, so I will just post the links for a chapbook contest I’m entering (from Palettes & Quills — deadline is Sept. 1) and a free online course I’m taking in modern and contemporary American poetry, starting Sept. 10.
That is all. You may now quit staring at my ring and go back to whatever it was you were doing. If you can quit, that is … I believe it has hypnotic powers.
