the one and the other dance in the rain

Hello, one.

Hello, other.

It’s raining today.

Yes…wait, are we doing this on Tuesdays now.

I don’t know. Is that a problem.

Well, you know how I am about change…it makes me nervous.

Yes, that’s true…I do know that. But is this really such a big change.

Sometimes it’s not the size of the change, other. Sometimes it’s just how I feel inside.

Maybe it’s the rain.

It could be…is there something we can do about that…

We could dance in it!

Oh!

What do you think.

I like it but I’m feeling shy…

Well, I am rusty, if that makes you feel better.

Do you know the steps.

No…let’s just wing it.

Okay. I just want to feel free, you know.

I know.

Thank you, other.

It’s why I’m here, one.

Maybe it will be a misty rain!

I hope so…let’s go.

Okay.

[interlude of wet frenetic dancing]

I feel so much better, other!

I know! That was fantastic!

We should dance more often.

We really should.

Will you remind us.

I’ll try.

Goodbye, other!

‘Til next time!

  1. I’m laughing, this is lovely and funny. I don’t know why, but in this piece, the one,or maybe it’s the other, reminds me of The Cat In The Hat when I imagine him !?

    • Glad you enjoyed it! And that it got a laugh out of you…I feel like a success. And I think the The Cat in the Hat sounds like a fine image…why not.

    I image the one and the other as circular beings… I loved this, on my rainy morning. Thank you!

  3. I can see Dr. Seuss, and they certainly seem circular, the one and the other, but I also hear something not dissimilar to Mo Willems’ Elephant & Piggie books – the key (and classic) texts here being ‘Elephants cannot dance!’ and ‘There is a bird on your head!’

    • I like that. I don’t think I knew of those books (they came out after I’d left working in public libraries), but they look really fun. (‘There is a bird on your head!’ seems somehow familiar, though.)

    I like your word usage. I really get to know these characters even though not too much is said. A lot is left up to the reader. I would like to attempt a drawing of these two, though it would be hard to compete against Mo Willems and Dr. Seuss.
