I Have Two Ouchies! Help!
She has been avoiding me for the past 24 hours. I wondered when I was taking her photo yesterday and she wouldn't look straight at me.
Now I know. In all of the crazed zapping, she lost a finger and part of her nose...Not good.
I asked, "What's up?".
She answered...stammering a bit, "I broke something...".
OK. I kind of knew what she was up to. She never wears that apron unless she wants people to think that she is a sweet little witch... And she doesn't hand me a tool unless she needs something fixed...
"I chipped my nose and broke a finger. I can't find the pieces or I would just glue them back on and be on my merry way. I think I need your help..."
After a moment of silence, she whispered in a tiny voice, "Please?"
It has to be serious if Tessie uses that word. So, without another word, I went and got some Super Sculpey. It only took about five minutes to fix. She held the stylus after I fixed things, so I could take a photo for posterity. And she even went in the oven minus clothes, without complaint. Of course, once she is minus the clothes, she seems to be able to turn herself off to the outside world.
As soon as she was out and I dressed her again, she went back to her old self. She demanded a mirror. She took a long look and said, "Well, I guess that's OK. Usually you make me taller or prettier. I look the same as I did before you started."
I answered, "Tessie, may I remind you that you had a broken nose and missing finger?"
She completely ignored me. Then she zapped out of sight.
I found her in the workroom watching the SyFy channel.
She didn't even bother to turn around. She just demanded, over her shoulder, never taking her eyes from the screen..."Bring me a comfy chair, a Cherry Pepsi and some chocolate chip cookies. And hurry up! I can't stand here all day!
Oh well, I guess the crisis is over and things are really back to normal now...
I have to go bake chocolate chip cookies.
See you tomorrow.
