Two little dogs / one white and one black
Childhood entertainment when the service went too long
Carried in my mother’s purse
with Juicy Fruit gum and a silk handkerchief
A magnetic pair in a little white box
Imaginative fun for one little boy
Today is Quadrille Monday (only 44 words) at d’Verse. De asked us to write about magnetism in any way we chose. I was taken back to pre-school days when my mom would carry the magnetic Tricky Dogs in her purse to entertain me at church. I loved playing with them. If you put the like poles together they would spin around and connect from opposite poles. They were great entertainment for me.
