kate5kiwis: The Three Musketeers


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

The Three Musketeers

when it's just you'n'me'n'you at home by ourselves,
we quickly slip into a sort of Three Musketeers vibe.

you lads do laddish sorts of things by yourselves -
going running and mowing lawns -

while i sit in the sunshine and create stuff,
and then we all go off arm in arm together.

we eat rather adventurous food too -
and that's fabulous.
cos three people are never a crowd in the kitchen.

the days go from mid-morning until late, late at night,
instead of dawn 'til dusk,
and there's the occasional nana nap for the oldies

as our allegro con molto spirito
becomes andante con amore
and you throw my precious lemons to the sheep
over the back fence when you think i ain't lookin'.

and we sing, and quote movie lines,
and tell bad jokes, and laugh.

laughing is good.

Sounds perfect... we spend our days in a similar fashion. I couldn't get the movie today... "So what are you bringin it up for, ya lemon?" Not even when James said "Starts with C... and ends with ...ars."

I gave up. The kids couldn't stop laughing.

Oh... of course...Cars. What a dork.
