We are looking for this carrier now. So romantic! But so is the white van, with its mysterious lack of identity, and its sliding door sound as packages are heaved out ready to be stacked in a lobby or gently placed on a doorstep.

I remember, we were going so fast, slowly.

You couldn’t see us, just a streak in a hammock or as some said ingenuously “the fastest snail we ever did see!”

No we have a bed that goes on for miles, a car that parks itself and a parrot who plays video games.

Now that we call the tune, and other people names, it all seems worth while.

There is still space to soar to higher heights and better things!

Twist to open, cross your fingers to close.

Right away, we have winners, everyone won the battle for joke-telling.

The international Committee for Laughter requires everyone telling a joke to have a license, references and a top hat.

We are addicted to qualifications.

There is a five step program to get off that…we hope.
