my little sister tells me she will share the staff with me.  i’m so freaking excited! it means i don’t have to fight her for it.  it’s obvious to everyone that it has always been mine.  i open the school locker and pull it out.  it’s almost as tall as i am, standing there in my sandals red wrap dress.  the staff naturally branches out into a full pair of antlers.

i sit with it next to me at the picnic table. neighbors in the trailer park are asking if i like their microwave.  i tell them that i have the same one and it works, but it has one flaw.  the light bulb is too pointy.  it disrupts the waves and causes things to burn occasionally.
