Basket Case .

Esme, " Well I tried telling you about my favourite blanket until you know who cut me off but now I thought I'd tell you about my favourite basket. LP says I am her little basket case every time I step into this basket and then she smirks. That's right. S M I R K S. What affront!"

Esme , " I have to tell you first of all , that this used to be Lewis' favourite spot in the house. No one else ever used this basket but after he left us, I decided to take it over. It makes me feel close to him. I mean , I know I used to whap him like I like whapping this plant but he was my little bro and well, I wouldn't let anyone else whap him , you know? "

Esme , " I like to stretch out in the basket like this. Lewis liked to stretch out too but he usually fell out onto the floor. He was a lot bigger than me !  I'd laugh. With him. Not AT him ."

Esme , " The fun thing about this basket is that it doesn't have a flat bottom , so you can rock yourself to sleep in the sun . Balance is everything of course ."

Esme , " I also like to pretend I'm on a Tropical Island when I am lying in the sizzling sun in my basket. There are lots of birds on my make-belief island ."

Esme , " This is me pretending I'm not a threat to the birds on the Tropical Island. Then I pounce! "

Esme , " But I would never actually HURT a bird. I like to play , "Catch and Release " and then after I release , I fall asleep.Do you have a favourite basket ? "

Have a swell day.
See you soon.
