#1 The Glide
Some moments are beyond words.
#2 The Miscalculation
Shadow thought she could jump across the canyon. I didn’t think she could make it.
Then she tried.
Unfortunately, I was right.
#3 The Iron Giant
When we really need one, there’s nothing better than a strong friend to lean on. Someone who’ll just stand there and listen. Like a giant robot.
#4 The Hike
“Look at us,” I said. “We’re lost in the woods. It’s almost dark. Whose idea was it to take this stupid hike anyway?”
#5 The Tour
When Impala Safari promises “Up Close Nature Tours,” they are not kidding.
#6 Hey! Who took a bite of my apple?”
Hey! Who took a bite of my apple?” I asked the three Presidents.“I can not tell a lie,” George said. “I did not do it.” “They don’t call me ‘Honest Abe’ for nothing,” Abraham said. “I didn’t do it either.” Then it was Donald’s turn. He swallowed what was in his mouth and simply said, “Obama!”
#7 The Helpful Local
I almost never ask for directions. But when I finally admitted I was lost to a local down on the beach, he actually offered to give me a ride.
#8 The Incredible Hulk
“There’s more racism over there,” I said.
“Hulk smash!” The Hulk replied.
#9 The Hunting Party
When I was asked to go duck hunting, this is not at all what I expected.
#10 The Cannonball
You know that expression: Look before you leap? Yeah, maybe a quick peek isn’t a bad idea.
#11 The Rescue
I didn’t ask how she got the plastic six-pack holder stuck around her neck. I was just happy to help.
#12 The Realization
I’d never really given it much thought… but tonight, as my brothers chirped on and on about their favorite kind of worm and my sisters pecked mites out of their feathers, the idea occurred to me that perhaps I’d been adopted.
#13 The Abduction
Of all the days to take my cow for a ride, I had to choose this one.
#14 The Coyote
True friends stay beside us when times get tough.
#15 The Hatch
It was such an honor to be in the field as the turtledoves were hatching.
#16 The Disappointment
“Are you the great and powerful Genie?”
“No. Sorry, love. I’m the cleaning lady. Just tidying up between renters.”
#17 The Dog House
You know when you imagine someone else’s life is more comfortable than it actually is? Yeah, that’s how I felt up there on that doghouse.
#18 The Date
I offered to drive to the restaurant, but Supergirl said she knew a shortcut.
#19 A call for peace
At a moment when violence and deep hatred is literally burning across our country, I offer this image as a call for peace and a prayer that one day every black boy and girl will be able to grow up in the United States with respect, opportunity and safety.
#20 “Are you coming for me?”
“Are you coming for me?” I asked Death. “Is it because of the virus?” “Oh, no,” Death replied. “I just thought I’d trim these bushes.”
#21 Finding Toilet Paper
“After not finding any toilet paper for several weeks, I finally spotted a roll down on the rocks tonight at sunset. It was an adult male, soft and plump but heavily armed. I approached with nervous excitement.
“One step closer and I’ll wipe that smirk right off your face,” the toilet paper shouted in defiance.
“If anyone’s gonna do any wiping, it’s gonna be me,” I shouted back as I lowered my net.”
“Hey, everyone! I think I caught it! We can come out now!”
“I’ve been afraid to go to the grocery store during the quarantine, so I haven’t been eating very much. Still, it has been a chance to lose those pesky extra pounds around my waistline—which is a plus. And just in time for summer!”
#24 Find Your Own Food
“I’ve been worried about the food supply, so I decided to take up hunting. It’s going well so far, but I’m not sure I bought the right hunting cap. I mean, as advertised, it does attract plenty of deer. But it also attracts plenty of hunters.”
#25 Love in the Time of Corona
“We may not be able to get physically close during this difficult time, but as I watched the last sunlight glinting off Pam’s gas mask, her filter cartridge canister had never looked sexier to me.”
