Mama just came back from her walk.
She walks outside, not just on the balcony but on the real ground.
I love it when she comes in and takes her shoes off.
There is so much to smell it takes a long time to sort through it all.
It takes so long that it wears me out and I have to nap.
I have wonderful dreams after Mama’s walks.
There are some wonderful bugs that visit our balcony.
Really big wonderful bugs.
Not only are they big they fly and they are noisy.
They live in the trees and when they are all whirring
at the same time they are really noisy.
Not only are they noisy they sometimes fly away
and leave their body shells and wings behind.
Mama says they are cicadas.
And, this is very important,
they are never to be brought inside.
I learned that the hard way.
Mama can be crazy if there is a bug in the house even a little one
if it’s a big one like a cicada she is a wild woman.
Uh-oh, there’s one on the screen.
I must shoo it away before Mama sees it and gets all weird.
