A dream in print.
Sarah and Linda where walking home from school when they seen 3 dogs crowded around a trash can and said look at the dirty doggies’ .Linda said we better get home ,mommas going to be worried about us you know how she gets pausing to look at the dogs. Then they trotted off down the street to the perfect house on the corner of the street.
Sarah and Linda got to the house and went in and called out for their mom and Rhonda came from the kitchen and asked what took you so long getting home today .Linda said that they had stopped to watch a few dogs acting odd at a garbage can ,and then came home.Rhonda walked over and started looking the girls over for dirt and for anything out of place. She always did the everything better be in place check.Rhonda said well that is not allowed and that the girls should never stop and pay attention to stray dogs ever they might bite them .
a few days went by and it was election time again in town and the mayor was all uppity about things being perfect about the town ,all the dirty things cleaned up they where going to have the TV people there to broad cast the whole thing …not that a small town needed to spend the money on TV broad casting ,but they did have a few paranoid shut ins that needed to see him boast about nothing that he was ever going to get done .Rhonda’s day went as normal ,checking things 6 times before leaving the house and making sure the children where clean and dressed perfect and hair was perfect ,an o.c.d patient never gives up on perfection. Linda and her twin sister where riding the bikes to school today and they had to be perfect also. As Rhonda walked them out of the house on to the porch she notice that it looked like it might rain. It always looked like rain
the kids took off to school and mom was off to her day in city hall.
the weather looked rainy and the whole way to work Rhonda kept thinking that she should have had the girls carry an umbrella with them. When Rhonda arrived at work she ran in to her husband Ron and talked about the weather and about the girls not having umbrellas ,Ron told Rhonda that it was going to be. ok they did not need them ,and to stop worrying about the weather it always looked like rain to her, Rhonda said sure but when you least expect the rain it always happens.
