The four-footed one goes from zero to one hundred in a second flat. And the. She can shift back down again in the same time frame. She can cycle back and fourth throughout the day the same way you would flip on and off a switch.
Today has been no exception and it’s why there are green eggs scattered throughout the place. It’s also why a pink dinosaur is perching on the edge of my coffee table while an orange salamander is hanging ever so precariously on a shelf. There are three red birds in my kitchen and two squirrels in the hall. I found a grunting hedgehog in my bathroom and a pig with wings hanging out by the bedroom.
As for the four-footed one, she has flopped down on one of her cushions in the middle of the floor. Resting ever so innocently and peacefully while I take in the chaos. And while the notation of cleaning it up crosses my mind, I know better. Just the slightest sound, the mildest of squeaks from one of the toys is enough to flip that switch to full throttle again. Which is not ideal when it’s basically time to sleep for the night and you know it will take her an additional hour to go from full throttle to peaceful rest again.
So for now I will leave the zoo as it is and because in a few hours she will rearrange it all over again. Probably a million times before the day is done.
