My current WIP is about a silkie. A creature that is a seal in the water and a human on land. As I initially tried to explain that concept to The Engineer he shook his head and said "So, it's about a demon walrus?" Now that is how he explains it to everyone. He very nicely suggested I should title it Demon Walrus.
When our son was born he was given a bunch of squishy bath toys. Yep, one of them was a walrus.
This morning Truck Boy was sitting on my lap as we watched something on the computer and he saw the walrus. "Have it?" he asked. "No, it's mommy's." He then informed me it was his. Being the wonderful mom that I am I didn't give it back. I distracted him with something else and all was good. For now. I like my Demon Walrus.
Do any of you have anything special on your desk, anything that makes you smile when things get difficult then get back to work?
