Highlighter Perch ...
I, of course, chose a rooster. And back at the office, I stuck him on top of a highlighter, because he fit perfectly and because I could keep him in my pencil mug that way, instead of cluttering up my desk.
I don't have much call in life for a highlighter these days, so he's been perched, ever since, on that same highlighter, corralled among my letter opener and assorted pencils and too many pens.
Until today. When I grabbed him to highlight some sentences in a book. And looked at him and thought, "You're today's picture."
It's nice to see him again. I like having animals on the ends of writing implements. I have a camel on the cap of a black pen in my car. Why else do you think little plastic animals have holes in them?
