Esme , " If you've been visiting for some time now , you might remember that Mitalee and I started a Tissue Paper Eaters Anonymous support group. We have a problem when that substance is around. It's actually been thirteen months and three days since I last ate tissue paper. I know!! I'm surrounded by it as we speak! But I will NOT be tempted! My resolve is remarkably strong!"
Esme , " I guess it wouldn't hurt to take one little whiff though.Ahhhh.Heady stuff !! Whiff.Whiff.Whiff.whiff.whiff. "
Esme , " Look at this little piece. It's just sticking up with nowhere to go! Hello little piece of tissue paper!You are adorable but you do not tempt me. At all!! I am iron-willed! "
Esme , " O.k. I will lick you. If you insist! Just a little bit. No harm in that! Lick, lick, lick. Just a little lickity, lick lick!! But no crunching! And certainly no chewing! I am mulish in my resolve! "
Esme , " Crunch!! Chew! Chew! Chew! Uh oh! I think I may just have fallen off the Tissue Paper Eaters Anonymous' wagon!! Unfortunately , my resolve was not resolute after all. Luckily for me there are no witnesses. . . "
Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.
