The Thinking Gnat

A gnat is annoying my nose today. She keeps coming back and landing on me. She is fast. Faster than my grabbing hand. I am eating an apple. Land on that! I wait. She does not respond. A gnat with a mind of her own. I may adopt her. I can often use a good-thinking gnat. In her honor, I have written the thinking gnat song. Thinking gnat, Thinking gnat, You are smart. You know where it’s at. Thinking gnat, Thinking gnat, You are amazing. Smarter than a bat. Thinking gnat, Thinking gnat, You should run the country, Just another fat cat.

Thinking gnat // Thinking gnat // Are you Republican? // or Democrat? … Couldn't resist, I'm afraid. Thanks for the inspiration, Caren! :) gw

I loved it too; when I felt it coming toward the surface I began type-dancing!

You and I both loved it. It is nice to be appreciated this morning as it is starting out to be kind of a tough day.
