5 Minutes for Special Needs

The artist sets to work with her little brother as model, caught by the throat, one handed life drawing. Miss Incredible, who can extort the required behaviour without apparent force.
“Ugh you have dog breath,” he squirms.
“Grrrrr sit still you little mongrel or I’ll eat yah fer breakfast. A dogs’ breakfast!”
“Meow.”
His older brother watches, cautious in his Vampire suit, “can’t eat Vampires anyways.”
“Shut up Mister, your turn’s next so take those teeth out…..I said now!
“!”

What is it? Indigestible!

5 Minutes for Special Needs

I coax my son.

“Have a go. You may just like it.”
“Bleah!”
“I know you don’t like butter but this is different.”
“Bleah!”
“It can count as your new food for the day if you like?”
“Bleah!”
“That’s vinegar. Remember you like salt and vinegar crisps now?”
“Bleah!”
“You could have this instead of butter, every night.”
“Bleah!”
“It’s so much better for you.”
“Bleah!”
“And it will help fatten you up.”
“Bleah!”
“I thought you said you wanted to be fatter? Didn’t we agree?”
“Bleah!”
“Just dip the corner of your bread in. You don’t even have to get your fingers dirty.”
“Bleah!”
“I don’t understand? I thought you were willing to have a go?”
“I wuz.”
“Great! Off you go then.”
“Not now.”
“Why not now?”
“Because……it is different now.”
“What’s different now?”
“Dah oil and dah vinegar.”
“What’s different about them now than when they were in the bottle?”
“Dah shaping.”
“What shaping?”
“It’s bad.”
“What’s bad?”
“MOM!”
“Yes dear?”
“Don you get it?”
“Er…..no……no I don’t get it.”
“I cannot be eating of dah parallelogram.”
“!”

Chocolate Coronary Cake

16 ounce tub of Cream Cheese at room temperature
6 ounces of Graham crackers crushed
4 ounces of butter [salted]
16 ounces of milk chocolate

Method:-
Melt the chocolate
Melt the butter stir into the chocolate
Add the cream cheese and stir
Tip in the cracker crumbs and stir
Pour into an old ice cube tray lined with cling film / saran wrap.
Chill until cold
Turn out onto a plate and pull off the plastic.
Slice no wider than your pinky finger.

This is a chef’s original. It was supposed to be chocolate cheesecake but when I checked, we only had half the ingredients. Then I thought…..chocolate, crumbs, butter, cream cheese………… how bad can it be?
Yes he was completely speechless at first bite, but the victory dance that followed said it all.

Sun Valley Rutile over Woo Blue

5 Minutes for Special Needs

I examine them closely, just like my homegrown judges did. Save me from visual acuity!

They are all small, deliberately, as there is only so much clay and time that I can afford to throw away.

This is the only one I like.

All were thrown at the same time with the same clay. Fired in the kiln at the same time. Glazed in the same manner on the same day, yet each one of them is different from the other.

9 are useable the rest are “poo pots.”

One has a sharp shard from someone else’s explosion. One has two mysterious white spots from goodness knows where.

Three are on the pink side. Two are still pooish, brown and fatally dull. That leaves 4, only four and of that four, I only like one. How many bowls will I need to throw before I can make a set of four? It’s the kind of maths question that drove me quite dotty when I was small. Now I am big and I still have no answers.

On the other hand, some people’s names just slot together like magic. A marriage made in heaven, or rather Ireland but lets not be picky. Happy Anniversary Anne and Ned!

What is that?

5 Minutes for Special Needs

So what is this?

Here’s a “clue.”

But if that is too tricky, how about this:-

Here are some suggestions:-

a] a dog who continued to drink from the “toilet?”
b] a dog who has put himself up for adoption due to pet “abuse?”
c] a new breed of dog, part dog, part peacock. [Please offer your suggestions]
d] none of the above.

Answers………

The top one is a picture of guitar strings before they were attached.

The second one is poor Thatcher after his beauty treatment. Maybe it will help them remember which “end” is “which?”
