The other day I bought a skipping rope because I liked its cute wooden character handles.
I left the rope on my desk and as soon as Pomi saw it he introduced himself.
” Who are you? Tied up twins? Let me help you out of this mess. I am Pomi.”
“Left and Right. I am Left and he is Right.” Came the answer and a synchronized smile. ” We are the Ropes.”
” Oh really? ” Pomi giggled.
” You think that’s funny, Mr.Pomi?”
“Oh no, Mr. Left!” Pomi chuckled. ” Not at all. There, now you are free. What are you doing in my room by the way? And why are you constantly smiling? ”
“We don’t know what we are doing here.” Left and Right replied in sonorous chorus giving Pomi a cross eyed grin. My little crochet guy looked baffled for a moment.
” Something wrong with your eyes, isn’t there? Not that it matters, I was just wondering. Anyway, it’s nice to have company. We could do something together. Let’s go outside.”
” We can’t!” Mr. Right and Mr. Left wailed in unison.
” Oh I see, no legs. Let me help you. ” Pomi took the two wooden fellows one under each arm and carried them outside.
Mr. Right went up , dangling in the air and Pomi climbed the rope, leaving Mr.Left dangling at the bottom.
” Are you two having fun? ” There was no answer. ” I take that as a no.” Pomi decided, ” Let’s build a swing then.” and he tied Mr. Left and Mr. Right together.
” Ok?” he asked.
” We can handle it.” replied the wooden twins and soon Pomi was swinging happily on the Ropes
who unperturbed, maintained their identically bespectacled grins.
