Hello, What's This?

This is the door mat just outside of my oldest daughter's kitchen door. It's moss............yes, that's right......... moss. I think it's funny how sometimes you find something incredibly beautiful in the last place you would ever expect to.

Hmm. It may look nice but moss does freak me out a bit.

Mo.: Moss is nice, it's soft. It's nothing at all like mold, which makes you cough & wheeze.

I have heard of moss before, we here in Colorado are too high and dry for it to grow.

Marian: Cool, I was sure that you had moss in England. But I'm totally surprised that you have "conversation hearts". I love the idea of selling sweets in the fashion stores. It goes right along with the thinking that women should be a bit more fleshy.

Chris: Have you lived there all of your life? Maybe you could start a little terrarium or something.

Reminds me of this one guy's bathtub in college. Only instead of moss it was mold.

Okay, now that I think about it that is really nothing like bathtub mold. I don't know, my mind just does stuff like that.

diane said...

Joanna: Yes, I can see that "rake" thing, now that you mention it.

Drolly: I'm going to look up barnacles now.

Miss Yvonne: O.K., now just stop it, because you've got my mind working that way now too. It's all fungus and black basement walls, crap.

diane said...

Kate: Nothing beats moofies.
