In the middle of the night, the house is dark.  I wrestle from underneath the cats and stumble into the bathroom.  Puff – I’m on the floor.  I look around to see no one’s been disturbed.  A cat comes over and nozzles my leg, but all else remains hush-hush.  No one sees me lying on the bathroom floor next to the toilet.  I look for some sort of vine to pull myself up.  Then walk back to bed, pulling up my underwear.

  • Use the words: vine, hush-hush, and puff
  • Pay attention to the title, but only use ONE word
  • tag with gwwe
  • publish by August 31st for inclusion in next week’s column
