Nightstand





"I would like to have someone pick this up tonight between 6:00 - 9:00 pm."



I like the tone of this - confident, insistent even. An imperative, a command. "I know you're all going to be knocking down my door, but there is a condition I'm really going to need you to satisfy, 'kay?" It appears to be pure wishful thinking to me, though. I would like to be a werebutterly - turning into a butterfly for half an hour or so on every warm, windless, low-humidity day in my neighborhood. But it never seems to happen.

I'm a werebutterfly.

It's not all that great.
