  • Clever, if you bake Christmas cookies

    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    Very clever. I admire those creative types who see this opportunity.
    Not where I breathe, but where I love, I live...

      I thought everyone knew this.

      I distinctly remember my second-grade teacher doing this (obviously, when I was in the second grade), and we had a class exercise about drawing around the venerable gingerbread man cookie cutter and seeing what people could make of it. There were all sorts of snowmen, faces, etc. One clever girl made one of these into a comical Ronald Reagan with his signature hairstyle. Another made a rather alarmingly accurate caricature of another black girl in class who always wore two of those pigtails on the side of her head that for some reason was popular in the '70s.

      Can't really make a Barack Obama out of these (no, I'm not going political here), but I bet one could make some other characters. Bugs Bunny, Wile. E. Coyote, perhaps even Foghorn Leghorn.
      Bask in the warmth of the Deep South
      No one will be denied:
      Big law suits and bathroom toots;
      We're all getting Dixie-fried.
      But somewhere Hank and Lefty
      Are rollin' in their graves
      While kudzu vines grow over signs that read "Jesus Saves."

        Looks like you just got elected to be the official
        NEIP cookie maker this year.

          Well, I never thought of it and I bake a tedious number of Christmas cookies. My reindeer cutter is of the 'leaping stag' type.
