“C’mon Tansy, we’re gonna be late!”
Tansy springs atop a parked station wagon, skitters across its hood, then jumps off so cat-like I half expect her to lick her paw…hand.
She grins, Cheshire-like. “Let’s throw rocks at stores on Colorado.”
“I’m crazy. Don’t you know that?”
“You’re not crazy, you’re just part cat.”
She begins to purr and rubs her shoulder against mine. “What do you want to do?”
“Go to school.”
“You always say that.”
“I’m leaving now. You coming?”
Tansy dances around, leaping in her feline way before picking up her backpack. “Meow, let’s go.”

Wonderful imagery, Miko. You conveyed so much of these interesting characters in so few words. Nice.
I was always the one who wanted to go to school, but only because I was afraid. Deep down inside, I wanted to break the rules. Your story brings up memories for me.
I wonder how many readers will see themselves in one of the characters, and how many will find they’re a little of both.
Sorry, but I missed the punchline in this one.
Crazy friends are often the best.
And opposites do attract, don’t they?
