Captain’s Log Star date: 04-25-2014 It has been four months since I was ejected from my space pod.  Since the ejection, I have put on some weight and my legs are longer.  I fear that even if I locate my space pod, I may be too large to fit inside of it.  Therefore I will have to seek out an […]

Musings of a Newborn

Star date – 150120013, It’s been six weeks since I was forcibly ejected from my escape-pod.  Fortunately my captors have demonstrated compassion.  The two older captors – who call themselves Momma and Daddy – seem to be kind.  They take turns changing my space suit which inexplicably floods throughout the day.  The younger one, whom Momma and Daddy refer to […]

So…I won’t talk about why […]

If Baby Could Talk – Pretty Kitty

Baby was on the floor rolling around from one end to the other.  He stopped when he saw Gwennie walking by.  With a wide smile and overwhelming happiness in his eyes he squealed with joy.  “Pretty Kitty!  Pretty, pretty kitty!” Gwennie, annoyed as usual, sneered at him as she marched by.  “Yes little thing; that’s right.  I’m pretty.  You’re very […]
