Team Steinkellner Town–Population 4: The Waiting for Emma Years

17 Sep

There was no “hide ‘n seek in the car” on long road trips.

There was no fifth opinion over the lunch option of McDonald’s or Wendy’s.

No one gave dog kisses.

No one came up with instantaneous nicknames that stuck like glue as if they had always been there.

There were no low, throaty chuckles that seemed to come from deep inside of a tiny barrel.

The Care Bears were a solitary joy.

People pretty much wore the same clothes they started the day with. Or at
least they wore them all morning.

Everyone started their sleep in their own beds. No matter where they could be found at daybreak.

No one “dressed up”… again… and again … and again.

The Baby Blue Cat was just one book among thousands.

We almost never heard the phrase –“Here I am!”

There was only one sun in our solar system.

Team Steinkellner was woefully incomplete but had no idea.

    So true, Bill. Painfully so.
