Quotes I Like*

The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.

*Your mileage may vary. Some quotes are puns, or require historical or technical literacy to appreciate. If you miss the humor, please re-read the Internet and then try again.

Jamie 2 - Exploring the Yard dig_out


Jamie began to dig into the dirt blocking her escape. "Fortunately gerbils are made for digging," she thought. "After all, my wilder cousins in Australia LIVE underground." Jamie shuddered. What an uncivilized thought...

After digging for several minutes, Jamie paused and heard a sound far behind her, a slithering sound, faint but coming closer. Jamie dug faster.

Jamie paused and listened again. The slithering sound was definitely louder, and definitely getting closer. Jamie dug faster.

When Jamie listened again, the slithering sound was much louder, and was joined by a hissing sound. Jamie dug faster.

"How much dirt did that darned cat put in this hole," Jamie thought frantically. Now she could hear the slithering, hissing noise even while she dug. The creature, whatever it was, was very close, and moving fast.


And then she saw moonlight, and felt cool, fresh air on her face. Without a thought for the cat she had eluded she tumbled helter-skelter from the little opening and scurried toward the nearest plant she could find. Nothing emerged from the hole after her, and Jamie finally decided she was safe.

Jamie looked around, and considered her options. She noticed some high weeds against the house wall; perhaps she would find a treat in there? Or she could wander farther away from home, maybe even reach the other side of the yard. Or she could crawl around the house wall looking for other openings.

Explore the high weeds beside the house.

Try to reach the other side of the yard.

Crawl around the house wall.
